I suggest you ...

Onedrive is creating duplicate files every time the user connects back to the internet. How can this be avoided?

The Onedrive sync client has been installed and synced the files. When the user goes offline and edits some documents and comes back online, the sync is happening but creating new files with the name of the machine appended to the file names. This is really annoying as the folders are shared and synced with several users and every time a user comes online with a updated file its creating a new file instead of merging the changes

    Same problem here.
    As soon as file is changed and saved, infinite number of duplicates are created and syncing.
