FLR of files with period in the filename

Post by dmitri-va » Aug 16, 2016 2:11 pm

when we do an FLR of a Windows VM, the files with the period at the beginning of the filename are restored without the period, so if the backed up file was ".stgloc", it gets restored as "stgloc"

Hi Dmitri, just to make sure, is this a VMware environment?

Confirmed for the Copy To option, restore should work fine. Are you using Copy To? Will be fixed in 9.5.
