I have 2 files with a forward slash “/” in the filename. After uploading one file to the NAS via SMB and the other via AFP, the forward slashes appear different in File Station. Why is this?

SMB and AFP do not allow “/” in filenames. SAMBA replaces the “/” with “☐”. The file “a/b” uploaded via SMB will appear as “a☐b” in File Station. Netatalk replaces the “/” with “:”. The file “c/d” uploaded via AFP will appear as “c:d” in File Station.
