Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

The current download, V3.101, fixes the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.

What's New

Please Note:
Version 3.1 will be the last of the 3.x series.
Version 4 will be released in March/April 2016.

Also Known As the iOS/nix Release

Version 3.1 introduces the ability to handle filenames that use characters available on the iOS and Unix based operating systems which are not normally workable or even viewable on Windows systems - any version of Windows. More importantly to many the same routines can be used to rename corrupt filenames.
