Compatibility Checker for Windows incompatible file and folder names

Use case or problem

Useful for syncing on the cloud where the cloud has illegal character limitations and if I’m syncing from a MacOs to Windows OS versions of Obsidian.

Proposed solution

The app should automatically prevent using illegal characters for file and folder names with the app, or at least automatically flag any files or folders that have this illegal naming.
