Hi all,

 

every time I edit a document in my OneDrive which I then try to change the name of when saving it again I get the following error!

Any ideas!?

It's hard to tell from all the redacted text, but it looks like the file path name is too long. Try saving it in a higher level folder with the same file name. If that works then the path name for the intended folder should be shortened. Many problems can arise when you pass OneDrive's path length or the local drive's path length.

Hi @Mike Williams 

 

Thanks I will try this and let you know.

 

Thanks
