Oops, your file could not be uploaded.

This is an error message that comes up in D2L

Remove the special character and any leading or trailing spaces from the file name that you are trying to upload and then try again. 

Unaccepted filename characters in D2L:
 Quote
 Asterisk
 Slashes / or \ 
 Colon
 Inequalities > or < 
 Question Mark
 Pipe or Bar

This error may also occur in other areas of D2L with other special characters in the file name. In general, it is best to limit file names to alpha-numeric (A-Z, a-z, 0-9) and underscore (_) characters.

Once the file name is changed you will be able to upload the file.
