Onedrive File Naming Conventions

Post by ira_wald »

I created a backup script that compresses and encrypts individual files. The destination is a OneDrive synched folder. The files copy OK - and most synch. However, some files have characters in their name that are legal with Windows, but not when saved to OneDrive (for example, '#' - which is very common with some of our user's naming conventions).

I know that I can solve by compressing to a single file where I specify the name. However, the file will be so large that we will be forever synching when there are only a few changes per unit of time that really need updating.

Is there a way to specify file names to adjust to rules of the destination server? Perhaps the illegal characters from one device could be mapped into something else when moved to the other?

Thank you for your help ...

Hi,

Sorry, but this feature is not supported with cloud services (it is only supported with FTP). However, I will pass your request to the relevant department for further review.

Thank you.

Is this not the point of Expert Mode: Cloud, Advanced - Automatically translate invalid filenames?

That said, I too am having trouble with pound sign in filenames with both Onedrive and SharePoint. Even with Automatically translate invalid filenames enabled I get error "Failed to copy from Local : invalidRequest: The request is malformed or incorrect." with filenames containing pound sign. Please add pound sign to Onedrive/SharePoint translate map.
