OneDrive Sync Client Preview Bug: syncs files with Read Only mode
I am currently evaluating OneDrive Sync Client Preview from this link: http://aka.ms/sposyncpreview
One issue that I want to report, the synced file in local computer drive has become Read-Only mode, only on particular synced document library.
I was trying to sync 2 SharePoint Document Libraries, in which all of them I have access as "Full Control". One of the locally synced document libraries, has its icon on all files and folders set to green padlock (read-only) instead of green checkmark. It's due to Write permission set to Deny automatically by OneDrive Sync Client Preview, although I have Full Control permission on the SharePoint Document Library.
I don't have the answer why this set to Deny, nor Microsoft Support in which I was engaged with them to find out the core issue. Please check the attachment for more detailed information.
And it seems I found similar unresolved issue: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeword-msoother/why-are-my-onedrive-documents-opening-in-read-only/beff9672-72c4-4afe-a199-b029d400a45b
In the Tech Summit and their documentation, Microsoft shared that the current limitation is when the user sync to Document Library with Check-out / IRM feature.
Can this feature be removed?

As far as I can tell this issue is still present in the recently (Jan 23rd, 2017) released version of the new Onedrive for Business (onedrive.exe). Judging from online forums (e.g. techcommunity.microsoft.com) it seems to affect a lot of users (including myself) who used to be able to sync Sharepoint document libraries and edit files with the previous Onedrive for Business (groove.exe).
However, I have not yet seen any confirmation from Microsoft that this is actually recognized as a bug.
Another Issue I see also when dealing with multiple accounts from different OneDrive licenses When you apply the Preview.Reg OneDrive will stay connected to those accounts but won't show them logically or physically as a result they Don't sync. Lastly when you go and try to add the account which you don't see logically or physically "except for the folder" I get the error: You Are already syncing this account. . .
