I am doing backups of the databases and one of the repositories where I have the most available space is OneDrive. Unfortunately, what is OK for the macOS file system is NOT for OneDrive. I get the following message on numerous files (and a few folders):
The name contains characters that aren’t allowed
Please rename the item, so we can sync it. For example, make sure it doesn’t begin or end with a space, end with a period, begin with two periods, or include any of these characters: \ /:*? " < > |
What’s the best approach to make sure the file names can meet the criteria? Many captures have legitimate pipe and question marks in them and a lot of those characters are hard to search for, either in Name or File Name.
Is there a way to control the file renaming, no matter what the Name is set to, or do I have to change the Name to a OneDrive acceptable naming convention?
