Hey! I am new to Microsoft Teams, in fact everyone on my work team is and we are trying to clean up our files by moving files into folders, however whenever I try to move a file to a folder I receive an error. Perhaps I could solve the problem if I could see the error, but the little error window disappears whenever I click on it. Could someone help me figure out how to move files into folders. I think it has something to do with the file being locked.

Best advice for moving files around is click the "Open in SharePoint" link on the files tab and use the SharePoint interface to manager / drag files, it works much better. 

 

This interface will be the baked in Teams file tab experience in the very near future.
