> I have looked but cannot find if there is a way on a file share to control the naming convention of files.
> I’d like if possible for a SAMBA file share to throw up an error if an end user tries to name any of their Word / Excel based files (or any files for that matter) with any of the following:
> Tilde 
> Number sign 
> Percent
> Ampersand 
> Asterisk 
> Braces 
> Backslash
> Colon 
> Angle brackets
> Question mark
> Slash 
> Pipe
> Quotation mark

Can you try with "veto files"?
You can specify chars that cannnot be included in your filenames.
