I am trying to sync file to a Onedrive for Business account. I get an error message with all files including a special character that they cannot bre synced because they are not supported.
Though if I upload them manually to Onedrive this works… so I believe this is supported
OneDrive has a lot of inconsistencies and funky rules for characters and path length.
Can you tell me what the character is?
Are these files showing up in “not allowed”? If so, can you also post a screenshot of the message displayed when you click on one of the items in the “not allowed” list?
Here is the screeshot.
I made some tests for different characters.
the characters + and & are actually allowed if you use the native client, but does not upload with odrive. #, % characters are actually not allowed by onedrive for business. (and others are not allowed by windows)
We are not using the new API yet. It looks like MS hasn’t “officially” released this API yet. In any case, I will make sure the integration team is aware as they are going through all of our integrations right now.
Any update on this “major” release that should solve this issue? It’s been a while since this post.
I believe these characters are officially allowed by OneDrive for Business now and I’m still getting a lot of errors with odrive trying to push them up.
There was a test build I posted to the forum a week or so ago asking for feedback, but I didn’t get any. This allows for ‘+’ and ‘&’ characters to be attempted. Can you give it a shot and let me know how it goes?
The others are still blocked (qa found some issues), but we can take another look once I get some feedback on this version.
Hi @Tony -
Apologies for the delay in getting back on this, but I’ve just installed the version you linked above and early indications are that it IS successfully syncing my files with the # character in the filename.
This is a really exciting development!
