Invalid OneDrive and SharePoint Filename Characters


We mentioned automatically Syncing Your OneDrive Account in a recent daily digest post.

But, invalid filenames disrupt syncing.

The following special characters should not be used in file or folder names because they serve other purposes within OneDrive and SharePoint:

           ” * : < > ? / |

If you have a file or folder that contains any of these characters, rename it, and syncing should continue.
