Recommendations and Troubleshooting

  • When uploading files to your OneDrive we recommend that you drag over one folder at a time. Wait until the contents have finished uploading successfully before uploading the next folder.
  • Files will occasionally have errors while uploading. Common issues are available below:
    • Files may have invalid characters in the name, these characters are # % . & : * ? " < > | and any other unusual characters.
      • To remove these characters: Right Click on the file that needs to be renamed and click “Rename” in the context menu. Remove the invalid characters and synchronization will continue.
    • File names may be too long, try these suggestions:
      • File names are limited to 120 characters, if a file name is too long: Right Click on the file, select “Rename” from the context menu and shorten the length of the file name. Easy ways to do this:
      • Remove Spaces, use abbreviations, remove conjunctions. File names should be brief and clear but don’t need to describe everything in the file.
