Important Information About Creating a Subfolder

  • Once you have created a new folder, the screen will automatically refresh displaying the new folder in the folder tree. This may take a few moments. 
  • New folders may also be created in a GroupShare in which you have full access. 
  • Try to use only alphanumeric characters and spaces in file and folder names to avoid problems.
  • Certain special characters are not supported in the remote file or folder name, such as \ / .. < > # % & " '. Though your operating system may allow special characters,  they may not be allowed by FilesAnywhere. Browsers might interpret some character combinations as executable codes, and for security reasons, should not be included in file or folder names.
