Windows NT does not like to have a "." (period) at the end of a file name and can't access files with "/" (forward slash) anywhere in the file name. If you liked to put dates in filenames on Macintosh side, changing it manually would be a big task that MacNames can automatically deal with during migration of Word, Excel and other documents to Windows .Your file names will rapidly be cleaned.
Some characters like /, \, <, >, ?, etc. are allowed in Macintosh filenames but are illegal for most Windows applications. In addition, Macintosh files do not need any extensions.
