How to configure Index Manager to automatically rename files in the document folders that contain illegal characters.
Renaming files with illegal characters
Open the index properties and go to the Advanced tab. Tick the chechbox labelled Automatically replace illegal characters in filenames in the File Options section.
When to use this option
If your system contains files from non-Windows systems that contain characters that Windows does not recognize, you can have Index Manager automatically rename those files to comply with Windows naming conventions. In practise, Index Manager will map all illegal characters to an underscore (_) to maintain naming consistency.
