  1. onedrive web always stalls/hangs after uploading few files - hangs on "uploading *** items" for ever (win 10 chrome and Edge and IE)

    I am trying to upload my photos to onedrive via the web. I don't do it via the windows sync app as I don't want this folder synced as its too big.

    I know all the fragile problems with onedrive, and can confirm that:

    all my file names are < 8 chars + ".jpg"
    None of the filenames nor folders have any chars other than ascii
    There is only one level depth (a directory with files in it)
    I have 300GB of space left in my 1TB (so its not a space issue).
    Files are all < 10MB, so its…

      • Thumbnails not generated in OneDrive folders anymore

        OneDrive on Windows 10 no longer generates file thumbnails in picture folders. I've tried a dozen fixes, so it is directly related to the OneDrive App and Windows 10. Windows 7 is actually working fine with the same files and OneDrive folders. So there is a recent Windows 10 Update that has disabled the ability for Windows 10 to build a successful thumbnail cache. This is happening on multiple machines but only Windows 10 and not Windows 7.

        • Office files OneDrive sync issues since latest update of Windows

          Since the last Windows update, I have seen inconsistent OneDrive behavior with Office files:
          - Even though "Use Office 2016 to sync office files" is turned off, Office still tries to directly upload files to OneDrive when closing a file
          - Much frequent occurrences of the "You now have two copies of a file" when saving office files, which force to waste time in cleaning up the duplicated files.

          For the first issue, I temporarily changed the "Use Office 2016 to sync office files" to on, then back to off. That seemed to have stopped the upload to OneDrive while…

          • OneDrive web actually moves no more than 100-200 files

            This is a bug that has been staying for 4+ years and it really grinds my gears.

            When I select more than 100 photos and videos in "Camera Roll" folder and move them to another folder, OneDrive moves actually no more than 100-200 files, then tells wrong that it has moved all the files I selected in upper right corner.

            This bug doesn't rely on browser and subscription (I'm currently on Office 365 for Students and tried in Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge), but probably it's specific to my account.

            • Ability to switch between update rings (Production to Enterprise or Enterprise to Production).

              Microsoft says that you can define the Rings in Group Policy. Sadly this is NOT completely accurate. Here is what you can do:
              • If you are in the Production ring (18.06x) and you want to go to the Enterprise ring (18.025.x).
              • You add the registry setting as they say here:
              https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-group-policy-to-control-onedrive-sync-client-settings-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US#enableenterpriseupdate
              Section: “Delay updating OneDrive.exe until the second release wave”.
              • You will not be able to change your version until the Enterprise ring gets a version higher then the one you already have. Which means you will have to wait around 60 days…

              • Files On-Demand status icons not working correctly

                The Files On-Demand syncing seems to be working correctly, but the status icons displayed are often inaccurate.

                Most often it will show 'Sync pending' when OneDrive in the notification area says it's 'Up to date', even when every file/folder inside that folder is showing the same status.

                Another instance is the status will show as 'Available on this device', but right-clicking the folder will correctly show a check mark next to 'Always keep on this device' on the right-click menu.

                Lastly, I'm not sure if this is intended, but I set one folder as 'Always keep on this device' and…

                • Duplicates created when opening documents (iOS)

                  Offine-avaliable files opened while online and causes the iOS app do display a duplicate file that can not be deleted, opened or changed.

                  This happens every time an offline-available document is opened, edited and closed. These files can not be deleted, marked or edited in any way. Only way to remove these duplicates is to reinstall the OneDrive app, it is not solved with deleting cache.

                  The original can still be edited but new duplicates are created upon closing/uploading the changes. These duplicates only exist on the device (does not appear in sharepoint or other devices) and i suspect these…

                    • enable adding a photo to another album from the "Albums" view

                      When I'm browsing the photos in album A, and see one that would also be good for album B, I'd like to add it to B. However, there is no "Add to album" button. There is one if I'm using the "Files" view, and there is one if I'm using the "All Photos" view, but not while I'm using the "Albums" view. This is frustrating because in order to add the photo to album B, I have to back out of the "Albums" view and go into either the "Files" view or the "All Photos" view, navigate to that one…

                      • Add Back .txt Text Editor Option

                        On OneDrive.com, add back the option to edit text files. Starting around 12/20/17, the option to Open and edit a text file by right clicking disappeared.

                        However, it's possible to get back to the editor by using part of the link below.

                        https://onedrive.live.com/?v=TextFileEditor

                        Please fix this bug as this is a key functionality to edit simple text files.

                            Th onedrive client is like a formula 1 (server side) with the tyres of a bike.
                            I have the client costantly crash 5/10 times a day.
                            Cannot examine log files. Are not in plain text. Why did you choose to use a so unuseful way to log activities ?
                            The client always crash when i add a lot of files to a synced folder.
                            i had to upload a subdirectory to onedrive server via webdav because the client could not accomplish this result.
                            Please restart this crayy software form scratch and build something useful for your users.

                              • Onedrive is making problem with AutoCAD Xref system when the files cannot sync up to cloud

                                I use Onedrive with my team for "AutoCAD Xref system" and many time Onedrive stuck with sync problem.
                                it always shows "looking for change" or "processing change".

                                what I can do is only "unlink this PC and relink it again"

                                After that the files are flooded to every people pc with the suffix like "-pc name" which cause the problem with AutoCAD Xref because we have to check in every single file "which file from which PC" is the most current one that we have to remove suffix "-pc name" and replace it back to our Xref system.

                                It takes…

                                    • Pause Sync Bug

                                      If you have a large number of files to sync, but want to pause it, it gets stuck on looking for changes.

                                      I have to click settings to make the app crash and then wait for it to login then pause syncing again.

                                      • Photo previews not working when disabling "Files On-Demand" option

                                        Recently after a large update, Onedrive apparently enabled a new feature "Files On-Demand". After I disabled this option, photo previews were not loading anymore in Windows 10 file explorer (either as thumbnails or in the preview pane). Clearing the thumbnail cache with disk cleanup did not solve the problem. Enabling the File On-Demand option again solved the preview problem.
                                        However, I really want to have all my file stored locally, so this is not a solution for me.
