Rules for Folder Names

When you choose a name for your folder, remember the following:

  • The name must be unique only within its parent container or folder. For example, you can create a folder named myfolder in two different containers: movies/myfolder and sports/myfolder.

  • The name can have the same name as its parent container.

  • The name can contain uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, periods (.), hyphens (-), and tildes (~).

  • The name must start with a number or letter.

  • The name must be from 3 to 63 characters long.

  • The name must not be formatted as an IP address (for example,

  • The name must not contain underscores (_).

  • The name must not end with a hyphen.

  • The name can't contain two, adjacent periods.

  • The name can't contain dashes next to periods (e.g., and my.-container are invalid).

  • Names are case sensitive. For example, you can have a folder named myFolder and a folder named myfolder in the same container or folder because those names are unique.

  • The folder can’t be renamed after it has been created.
