file name limitations

I am usually a Mac user.  Is there a tool I can use to check all the filenames I have strored on Dropbox for compatibility with Windows OS?

Of course there is @dferrel!

To see if there are files in your Dropbox that may have problematic file names, you can try our lookup tool:  https://www.dropbox.com/bad_files_check

Also note that you can view a full list of the characters (letters, symbols, or numbers) that may be incompatible with the operating system on your computer in this Help Center article: https://www.dropbox.com/help/syncing-uploads/files-not-syncing

Let me know if you need anything else!
