File/Folder and Invalid Character Issues Blocking OneDrive for Business Sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all. I'm struggling with the above having imported a bunch of files and folders from a Mac, and am wondering where to seek assistance.

    I don't mind renaming files and restructuring the folder trees.

    The problem is that it seems not to be possible to do this from within the list of problem files thrown up when the sync fails.

    There seems to be no safe third party tool obviously available that permits running a search on the PC to find the problem file and complete the required editing. Windows doesn't support this because of the paths and some names are invalid.

    Catch 22?

  • Hi again Dave. The validation page requesting a mobile phone number is incorrectly showing a UK country code rather than the correct irish one. When I correct it it then decides that it can't send a message to my number...
