    Hi. I have a lot of files from my old computer that I downloaded to one drive. A lot of my file names have commas in them. Every comma has been replaced with the characters "^J". Is there any way do turn all those back into commas?

    OneDrive is a multi-platform file server, so its protocol eliminates certain special characters, such as commas.

    The file name may not begin or end with a space, end with a period, or include any of these characters: / \ < > : , " ? |

    These names aren't allowed for files or folders: AUX, PRN, NUL, CON, COM0, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT0, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9

    The path to the file must contain fewer than 442 characters.
