Your password should not contain any characters that are reserved XML characters ( < > ' " & ). It will cause a problem.

Map SharePoint Online, log-in to Internet Explorer and authenticate in LinkFixer Advanced using the same email address.


Important:

Remember that all files you migrate into SharePoint — using LinkFixer Advanced or any other method — must be placed within an already-existing SharePoint library. Note that simply creating a new directory (via Window Explorer) in the root directory of SharePoint is not sufficient. New SharePoint libraries can only be created through the SharePoint web browser interface. After a new library is created through the browser interface, it will also be available through the Windows Explorer interface and accessible to LinkFixer Advanced. Any folders and files that are placed into a directory in SharePoint that is not a library will not be accessible to users through the SharePoint web browser interface.
