I annoyingly keep getting emails informing me that I have used an ‘illegal’ character in the name of a folder in Outlook and as far as I can see there is no way to rename it or even delete on my iPad!

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting on our forum!

    Based on your descriptions, I found an article which can resolve your issue:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/windows-server/backup-and-storage/cannot-delete-file-folder-on-ntfs-file-system#cause-6-the-file-name-includes-an-invalid-name-in-the-win32-name-space

    See Cause 6: The file name includes an invalid name in the Win32 name space

    Besides, if you still have the same issue after you try the official method, you can run command chkdsk /f.

    Thanks for your support!

    BR,
    Joan
