The proposed solution is not working and perhaps the actual one has some trouble too

  • Resolution set to Wont Fix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Just as an experiment, I renamed a file on my computer and added a space before its name, I had to use the command line REN command, because Windows doesn't allow it otherwise. It caused all sorts of issues with the file system. OneDrive won't sync the file because of the leading space, and you can't rename it using File Explorer's right click menu.

As this is against good naming conventions in Windows, and Windows itself only allows it to be created by using outmoded command line functions, I don't see this issue as worth the effort.

As I stated in the original thread, if you want to create files that won't work correctly, that's on you to modify the tools we provide, and not on us to try and break things for you.
