How can we improve OneDrive on Mac?

File names, special characters

There are way too many restrictions on special characters in file names which prevent upload to OneDrive of files from Apple OS 10.13.

    DropBox never complains that the name of a file contains a special character — it just makes it work. I'm trying to move from DropBox to OneDrive and I'm told I have to rename 165 files?!

    Agree. There should be no restrictions on characters. This is 2018, DOS happened so very long ago, but Microsoft is still living in that past.
