Uploading database with remote container folder fails if folder has custom icon
Operating system version
Max OSX 10.8 on client; Windows Server 2008 on Server.
Description of the issue
If you have a FileMaker 12 database with container data in a Google Drive folder that you wish to upload to FileMaker Server using the Admin Console, it fails. This is because Google Drive adds a custom icon to each folder, and the Admin Console can't parse the icon file.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Move the database file and the folders out of Google Drive. Click on the folder, and hit command-I. Click on the icon, and delete it. Do this for all three levels of folder. Upload will now work.
Expected that it would ignore the icon
It doesn't ignore the icon
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
see screen shot
"The Filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect"
Move the files out of Google Drive. I suspect this issue may affect DropBox as well, as they also add custom icons to folders inside of shared folders.
