With previous versions of SafeGuard LAN Crypt Client, files which were accessed via a short path name (e.g. C:\DOKUME~1 instead of “C:\Documents and Settings”) were only recognised by LAN Crypt if a rule was defined on the short path name in addition to the long path name.
SafeGuard LAN Crypt Client version 3.71 only needs a rule to be defined on the long path name, it can then apply this to the short path name.
The following restrictions apply in relation to short path names:
- The path used in the encryption rule must exist at profile load time (except paths on shares).
- The path used in the encryption rule must not be renamed after the profile was loaded, otherwise the short path name may not work anymore on this path.
- For absolute path rules the short path name is also handled (relative path rules are only recognised according to the way they are entered during profile creation) .
