Thanks for the suggestion.
After reading through the comments, I have come to the conclusion that MS is not capable of implementing this change. They do not have the competent programmers the Box, Google, iCloud or what ever has.
MS does not have to do anything in the suggestions, businesses still pay them no matter what and the end-users don't matter.
The Fact that this problem still exists for the last four years shows the apathy MS has for their customers, they closed the original comments sections and started a new one (this one) how long until this one goes away so they can ignore it as well.
@Jason Moore probably is long gone from MS so that is why he is thinking of it in 2016 and this is 3 yrs later and still nothing.
No ability to use Symbolic links or have a removable drive be a OneDrive folder is so 1999.
The fact that there are probably a 100 different posts on file names ( I know not this post) is another issue. read through the various links and you will see a bunch out there for this issue (one dive install locations / links, and hundreds more file names.
Common MS get with Y2k and make this more like your competitors products. A product that works. If I wasn't forced by my company to use this product I wouldn't.
That said, if this was a GOOD product maybe I would spend my own money on it and get a subscription instead of Box, or use my FREE google drive space.
Jason Moore- you still out there - MS anybody home????
I have hundreds of thousands of files OneDrive tags as error- not going to rename them to fit some idea that a file must look like X. the file is valid on Mac, Linux and in some case even on Windows but says bad in OneDrive. Keep in mind you should only be making a copy of the file not trying to data mine it to see what it contains. Just store the file. I've never had a backup program of any kind tell me that my file naming convention was bad. I've been in IT for 25+ years, I've seen it all, this is the worst implementation of trying to control every little thing we do.
Simple, easy, the world does it, MS doesn't. If you allowed me to have OneDrive not be tied to a specific folder this would be fine as well. Not everybody has multi TB Hard drives to place the OneDrive "sync" folder, I need to be able to have symbolic links or the ability to have more than one OneDrive mapping, preferably to a mounted drive. Box, Google, iCloud, Linux, Mac, they all do it, why can't you????
