    OneDrive is unfortunately unusable for me at this point.

    The only thing that prevents OneDrive from being literally 100% useless is that it's needed to work-around the crippling of OneNote by excluding the use of local export. Between the lack of support for all legal Mac Filenames and the need for everything to be under the OneDrive folder, I really can't use OneDrive for much of anything.

    There is no reason for this. Symbolic Links and Aliases have been part of the macOS for almost 20 years. Aliases had been part of the Mac Classic since System 7 (1991) and symbolic links part of *nix since the '80s. Google Drive and DropBox have no troubles following symbolic links.

    OneDrive should simply support any valid macOS file name. I've not encountered any other service that has problems with valid macOS filenames.

    Also, since the OneDrive client can't follow aliases/symbolic links (The only macOS program I've used that has troubles with them), the only useful aspect of OneDrive is to work-around the OneNote for Mac's lack of support for export files

    Agreed. There's no reason that Mac Users should have to rename 100s of files in order to upload them to OneDrive.

    This, along with ignoring symbolic links, makes OneDrive almost literally useless for me.

    This is another "nail in the coffin" for OneDrive. I can't rename 100's of files just to force Windows Naming conventions. The Finder has no problems writing to Windows disks/CD/DVD. Even basic FTP programs can handle the translation.

    I'll second this. OneDrive is pretty much useless for me right now. Symbolic Links and Aliases have been part of the macOS for almost 20 years. Aliases had been part of the Mac Classic since System 7 (1991) and symbolic links part of *nix since the '80s.
