What is the impact of creating a folder name with a period at the end?


Answer/Solution:
Since Windows is not allowed to have a period at the end when you create a folder, StarTeam will have a problem handling the files status. If you create a folder in Window with a period, Window will automatically remove the period; however, if you create a folder with a period at the end in StarTeam, the period will still be there. The problem is when you add a file, the file will have an ‘Unknown’ status and you will not be able to change it to current. This issue will be addressed in the future release by Borland.
