I spent a day testing Alfresco Desktop Sync, below are my findings.
v means works as expected, x means some bug became apparent.

Create file (Japanese filename, English filename)
Desktop to Share: v
Share to Desktop: v

Modify file (txt, pptx)
Desktop to Share: v
Share to Desktop: not updated if this file had been created by self in the first place (from either Share or Desktop)

Rename file
Desktop to Share: v
Share to Desktop: x

Move file
Desktop to Share: x if not manager
Share to Desktop: v

Delete file
Desktop to Share: v
Share to Desktop: v

Create folder (Japanese filename, English filename)
Desktop to Share: v
Share to Desktop: v

Move folder
Desktop to Share: x nothing happens
Share to Desktop: x moved but containing folder remains

Delete folder
Desktop to Share: x Content deleted but folder remains (even though permissions allow to delete it)
Share to Desktop: x Content deleted but folder remains and re-appears on Share

Also: One can edit local file without remote write permission
In situation "Connection to server unavailable", clicking on status icon has no effect, and clicking several times make several menus appear evntually.

Hope this helps!
