Fix special characters in company name bug on mac

This is stated as fixed in version 17.3.6378.0329 of the mac app store app, but the problem is still the same.

If you have a special character in your company name - for example / - the mac client is unable to use the folder you have chosen.

A/S is the primary company type in Denmark, and names should include this notation. Because of this, the problem is widespread in Denmark.

I guess there are more special characters that are not being handled on the mac as well.

    Same issue here, our legal company name has a / symbol in it. OneDrive on Mac throws the error "Your OneDrive folder can't be created in the location you selected" for any location you select.
