FIX: Archiving to SharePoint Online gives error 'Failed to upload' when archiving to a subsite



ID: ZTN4335

This Zetadocs technical note applies to:

  • Zetadocs for Dynamics NAV 6.0 using SharePoint Online Archiving
  • Zetadocs Express 6.0 using SharePoint Online Archiving


When archiving files to a SharePoint Online document library folder path that already exists using a subsite, the following error is shown:

With default settings for archiving folders, this will typically happen after the first archive of the day.


A change in behaviour in a SharePoint Online function that handles folder creation resulted in an error returning if that folder already exists, rather than the previous behaviour of ignoring the folder creation call.


This fault was corrected in a hotfix, which is available by contacting Equisys Technical Support and quoting the technote number ZTN4335.


This behaviour was corrected in the hotfix detailed above.
