Which is exactly what I was doing. So, stack undeleted.
What? I absolutely would never do that. I’ve not insinuated I would do that. I even said there was no way I was going to do that back up there a bit…
I’m aware of Sparkle and how it will fall over on modified stacks. I don’t think it will auto-delete my system though, so I think I’m safe.
Entirely understandable Will, I wouldn’t expect you to.

Again Spacer is offered as a free stack. [/quote]
Yep, again, entirely aware of that.
It’s not, I said it wasn’t up there. And as for donations, you know full well I never shy away from donating to you for the free stacks you make, the last I believe was for the Mast stack, for which I think I donated a tenner. I’ve made numerous other donations to you over the years for either free stacks or support when you’ve gone above and beyond. In short Will, I have always valued your time and work and have never been afraid to put my hand in my pocket.
You might also recall that when I used some of your free stacks on a free project I made for the community I first cleared the use with you and made lots of requests that users donated to you.
Why do I now feel the need to point all this out? Because I feel, rightly or wrongly, that right now I’m being made out to be a freeloader, which I absolutely am not.
It’s OneDrive, and again, I absolutely expected that to the case and did mention it up there. I said I understand this is a corner-case situation and that it’s entire;y understandable if you don’t have the time/inclination to look at it. That is also why when someone else offered to have a poke around I took up the offer.
Again, it’s not hidden files. It’s file names with certain characters, of which a forward slash is one, and two of your stacks contain files with forward slash in the title.
I didn’t say it would be. I said the person who offered to help took four minutes to fix an issue I’d already found.
Over and above all this though Will, this is an absolutely ridiculous situation. I started this thread to see if anyone else had the problem I was having with Spacer and OneDrive. No one was. Eventually I worked out my own dirty-fix and posted here about it, in case anyone searched for this thread and also needed a solution.
Some kind soul then offered a solution and so I posted here about that, as a way to say "Will, I’m sorted now, as no one else has reported this issue to you please don’t put anymore time into this. And then, frankly, it all went stupid.
To recap… The issue is the forward slash in the file name, NOT hidden files. It’s One Drive, not Cloud drive. I will not be sharing the modified stack with anyone, I never said I would (I said the exact opposite). If my system falls over when an update comes out I will not blame you.
Should I ever avail of your free stacks going forward, I will as I almost always have done in the past, make a donation.
I’m happy to leave this one here now and move on.
