New and Updated FileChecker

Bill Baer created a utility called FileChecker. This tool parses a file server directory to call out rule violations for files you intend to migrate to OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online.

I’ve forked the project and updated it in a few ways:

  • Moved to .NET 5.0 (Core) as a console-only application
  • Cross platform compatibility, including macOS and Linux
  • Updated rules based off of the current invalid file rules

You can find the new project at FileChecker. I’m open to expanding this in any way. Binaries for Linux, macOS, and Windows are available in the releases section.
