Troubleshoot Problems Copying Your Files to your OneDrive

If you are copying your computer files and folders into your OneDrive and run into errors with the process, there may be problems with the way your files are named.

OneDrive may reject uploaded files if they:

  • Contain special characters
  • Have overly long file names
  • Have unsupported file extensions
For more information about specific file name requirements, see Microsoft’s document:
