So, I noticed that OneDrive didn’t sync some items, so I opened the window to see the errors:


It said to search help, so I did.  Guess what?  It actually didn’t help (surprise! :/).  To make matters worse, there was no actual way to access these files from this screen.  Someone from Microsoft actually created this screen with no way to actually open the folder to where the file is.  Being a developer myself I know this is extremely easy, which makes who developed this UI part extremely poor.  It’s things like this that make me understand more and more why people switch to Google Apps instead.

So what are the invalid characters?  No problem, I just went to Google Help instead (google.ca), and found this: https://goo.gl/B8J478    ;)

BTW: Just to be fair, the help was “offline”, but these invalid characters have been known since 2013, so still no excuse. ;)
