Adding files with unsafe characters to insight managed library

Hi,

 

We are moving our Solid Edge envioroment from a windows file server to Insight.

 

We want to migrate our exsiting Solid Edge files to Insight.

The problem is a lot of our files contain the "#" characther, which is not allowed on SharePoint.

 

How can I upload our files to SharePoint without affecting our current users working on our file server?

 

I want to  create a copy of our files on the SharePoint managed library - the new file name could be the same just without the "#" characther 

 

Thanks,

Ori

Just to male it complete!

 

Here is a list of characters that are not allowed in Sharepoint and Insight

 

Not allowed in SharePoint:

~ " # % & * : < > ? / \ { | }

 

Not allowed in Insight:

# : \ ? * < > % / | " { } ~ [ ] Space ! ( ) = ; . , @ & +

 

How can you fix this problem?

 

Doing this manually you will run in the problem that you have to work with the RM and the "Where Used" search.  This is extremely time consuming and not practically!

 

Because of the many Insight Customers we have we developed a tool that is doing the job. We can talk about it if you like!

 

Kind regards

 

Stefan
