Windows 10: Error Code 0x80070057

    Error Code 0x80070057

    Hello, I had to go back to rename numerous files that I messed up in naming. I went through and fixed the names of maybe 30 files. One file, however, refuses to change. Every time I change the name (the file is not open in any programs) and hit enter or click out of the text box, it gives me the error 0x80070057. I even changed two other files after that one, it's just this one file that won't change. This is the Error box that pops up:

    It says the folder is Shared Online. Do you have Verizon Cloud account the file is on?

    I have it shared with coworkers on google drive, but all of my files are shared. All the names I changed were shared too. And it was all synced. This file doesn't seem to me to have anything different than the rest of the files. Yet it's the only one that won't allow me to change its name

    Right click the file and choose Properties. Go to the Security tab/Advanced/Permissions Change the permissions to Full Control, for you. If you want everyone to have read and write permissions, make it Full Control for everybody.

    Alright I figured out something new. I tried that full control thing and it didn't work. However, I need to change three of the numbers from 706 to 420. I accidentally typed 4420 and it successfully changed. I was curious and I typed in 44520 and again, it changed successfully. I then tried to change it back to 420 and it gave me the error message again. So my computer doesn't like the digits 420?
