Copying files between different operating systemsSyncrify works on every major operating system including:
- Microsoft Windows
- Mac OS X
- UNIX (Solaris, HP-UX, AIX)
CaveatAlthough copying files from one operating system to another will work in most cases, there is one rules to keep in mind:
You must adhere to the file name restrictions imposed by the operating system.
File residing on Syncrify server are stored using the same name as the client machine. For example, Microsoft Windows does not allow a question mark within a file name. Using question marks within a file name is perfectly okay on Mac, Linux and UNIX. Therefore, if a file containing a question mark is backed up from Linux to Windows, Syncrify will skip that file.
