Illegal Filenames in SharePoint

Whilst migrating documents from a network drive manually, I noticed that SharePoint was not happy with certain file names. Thought I’d add this in for future reference:

: \ / : * ? ” < > | # { } % ~ &

I use Bulk Rename Utility to rename files – Why do this manually? I like to do it this way so that I have control over what is migrated over – useless information certainly is not useful in a SharePoint system!
