Rules for Folder Names

Folder names must follow these rules:

  • 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.

  • Can have the same name as its parent container.

  • 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.

  • Can’t be renamed after the folder has been created.

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

  • Must start with a number or letter.

  • Must be from 3 to 63 characters long.

  • Must not be formatted as an IP address (for example,

  • Must not contain underscores (_).

  • Must not end with a hyphen.

  • Can't contain two, adjacent periods.

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