OneDrive for Business has a restrictions on certain file types and if the file is zero kb in size, then it would not upload, so if I rename a PowerPoint file to have a .zip extension and find a file on the list that is zero kb in size or is one of the file types restricted by OneDrive for Business, would this prevent the PowerPoint file from being saved?

If a PowerPoint file created with PowerPoint 365 has its extension changed to .zip, then I open the application with WinZip and find a file size with zero kb, maybe with a blank slide, would that prevent the file from saving (accepting) new changes, if it has the PowerPoint extension?

I just checked some pptx's on my computer and none of them had a 0 byte file, which implies to me that your powerpoint is damaged.

Even a blank slide will include a few KB. If you are seeing 0kb, then it's probably a corrupt file, as David mentioned.
Commented:
The file does not appear to be corrupted, since it saved okay to the local machine, but not on the cloud.
