Some files are not uploading to a SharePoint Online document library via OneDrive for Business.

When trying to upload these particular files using the site's Upload button I get the following error message.

I am logged on to the PC as an administrator and have Full Control rights to the file.

Can someone please help?

You don't have permission to open this file

  • Did you check if you have permissions to the online site? – Akhoy Jul 16 '15 at 5:03
  • Yes, I can upload other files to the destination folder ok, either by direct upload or by OneDrive sync. – Ash Jul 16 '15 at 5:18
  • Can you try copying the file to another folder or giving it another name and upload again? – Akhoy Jul 16 '15 at 5:24
  • That's the answer thanks - how do I mark your post as the answer? I created new folders and moved the troublesome files to it - they instantly synced via OneDrive. – Ash Jul 16 '15 at 5:55
  • Glad it helped. Added answer :) – Akhoy Jul 16 '15 at 5:57
