Why Am I Getting An “Oops, Your File Could Not Be Uploaded” Error Message In BigSky?

If you are getting the “Oops, your file could not be uploaded” error message in BigSky, there could be a few reasons why.

  1. Your file or folder name contains special characters. The following characters cannot be used in the names of files that will be uploaded to D2L: ” * / : < > ? \ | –
  2. Your file or folder name contains too many characters. The limit to characters in file names is 260 characters, but the best practice is to limit filenames to two or three words.
  3. Your file name does not contain a valid extension. Avoid using two consecutive periods ( .. ) in a file name.
