I am trying to see how to bypass a issue I have with a Mac that syncing to onedrive that can't save files where the location is TOO many characters.
Windows we can get around this by mapping the local folder as a shard folder locally as a network drive with a letter.
Mac I can't seem to do this.

I tried ALIAS, SMB/AFI mounting and CONNECT TO SERVER, same error about it being local and can't connect and to access it locally, permission denied or it just doesn't work when trying to save the folder in the folder path.

Any ideas, I can't rename the folders or files to be shorter.

I need a way to make the path thinks it short enough for me to save the files in the share folders.


I posted this on spiceworks but so far no real answer or workaround.

Actually, OneDrive's character limit is 400.

There are known issues with getting OneDrive to mount on a Mac. Are you using the version from the App Store?
