Hello,

 

When I have been using Teams and uploading files to the desktop app, Teams adds a period and duplicates each file. For example I would upload the file "Test.jpg" and Teams would also upload ".Test.jpg". The duplicate does not have any data but when I send files over to my teams through Sharepoint they think that the files aren't there and I have to delete these additional files.

 

Does anyone know how to fix this headache? I don't want to have to delete all of these additional files when I upload.

 

Using Mac OS Mojave version 10.14.16
