      Description

      There is a Liferay Sync issue when the Portal has a Site with special characters in its name.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Install Liferay Sync Version 1.1.1-ga1 on Windows
      2. Start clean Liferay Portal bundle
      3. Connect Sync to your Liferay Server
      4. Create a Site with a name that has special characters e.g.: "Test<>:|\/?"
      5. Add a Page and a sample document to your Site
      6. Select your Site in Liferay Sync configuration

      Result: Liferay Sync will attempt to sync documents from the Site, but won't be able to create the folder "Test<>:|\/?" -> invalid folder name on Windows

      It would probably be the best option for Liferay Sync to normalize the Site names so it could handle illegal characters.
