Desktop Release (09-10-2020)

Hi odrive crew,

Here’s another desktop sync update with Backup improvements and other goodies.

Win v.6694 / Mac v.6791:

  • Better illegal character handling. Allows odrive to display files which exist on remote storage but may have characters that are not allowed by the OS on your local computer.
    • Characters that are not allowed on the local system will be converted to unicode equivalents
      • : = : (\uFF1A)
      • / = / (\uFF0F)
      • \ = \ (\uFF3C)
      • * = * (\uFF0A)
      • ? = ? (\uFF1F)
      • " = " (\uFF02)
      • < = < (\uFF1C)
      • > = > (\uFF1E)
      • | = | (\uFF5C)
      • Leading and trailing spaces = (\u2007)
      • Leading and trailing . = . (\uFF0E)

  • Backup improvements:
    • Setup UX adjustments, including upfront verification of backup destination and a warning when backupSupportMerge is true and your destination is not empty.
    • Logging fixes and error handling improvements.
  • Desktop notifications improvement for new items going into the Not Allowed list.
  • OneDrive for Business logging (msbusiness.log), throttling tweaks, and other fixes.
  • Mac UI dark mode fix.

The sync client app installers can be found here if you need it before it goes out to the autoupdater.

The usage guide, this forum, and our support team (email: support@odrive.com) are available if you need help or if you have questions.

Cheers,
-Jeff
