When I goto Users -> Shared Folders and try to create an alias to this OneDrive folder, it allows me to make the entry, but it does NOT work when connecting remotely to the server:
f:\OneDrive - company-tech.net
When connecting remotely to the shared folder, it will display the folder contents, but it won't allow a file transfer and fails. Filezilla Server reports this error:
550 Could not open file for reading.
But if I create the alias to this folder name, it will work:
So I believe Filezilla Server is having an issue with the hyphen or period in the folder name.
I would use the simpler folder name, however, OneDrive does not allow me to change the name of the folder as that belongs to the OneDrive account name, which in this case is "company-tech.net".
