This is extremely important actually. Thanks for bringing it to the community’s attention.

Here is the complete list of Windows naming conventions:


There are more conventions in the link above but here are the main invalid/reserved characters that should NOT be used in file or folder names:

< (less than)
> (greater than)
: (colon)
” (double quote)
/ (forward slash)
| (vertical bar or pipe)
? (question mark)
* (asterisk)

@christianhenson Any chance you could you add this somewhere to the instrument upload instructions?

Kind regards,
