We are preparing to upload a lot of company data to SharePoint online.

We know there are characters which are not permitted in folders and file names such as the ampersand (&). Is there a utility which we can run on the local data which will provide output of all the folders / files which will not be compliant and in an ideal world make changes?

If you try to upload folders / files which have illegal characters to SharePoint online, does it simply stop you or produce a report at the end?
