Re: Problem with non-valid file names on w32

If you have shared resources, the rules governing file name validity
could be different in some mounted volumes. How do you plan to say
that to Emacs?

Most probably that shared resource would add more restrictions on file
names rather than adding possible characters, right? Or is the current
file name restrictions in Windows dependent on the file system type?

That is a feature (if unintended). foo:bar is not an invalid name in

I agree. That might come handy.
