    16Gig RAM is pretty standard these days. With Outlook, Access, Word, PP, +++ all working, not necessarily always, 4Gig limited RAM is a significant and obvious bottleneck.

    Surely MS knows this. Get with the times.

    open in 2016 and today in 2019 is in the plans? Is this site outdated or bankrupt?

    Dear Microsoft,
    Please note, OneDrive seems to be taking the policy that business would be better if we did not have any clients.

    In a cordial manner, please inform your OneDrive project teams that most the personal computers currently run on 64-bit operating systems with x64-based processors Please have them upgrade also.

    If you do add a 64-bit Sync Client, how will you allow Office 365 Tenant Admin's to control whether their organization gets distributed the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Sync Client? Will there be a setting that Admin's can set? Our organization would be unhappy if the 64-bit version was pushed as the default. :(

    I want maximum reliability with OneDrive on my Dell Inspiron desktop and 2-in-1 and Lenovo ThinkPad. I hope this'll be implemented by Nov. 1, 2019!

    Recently I ask a Microsoft representative about the sync problems with OneDrive. He only answer that everything if fine with OneDrive, but running in 32 bits is really sad.

    The easy way to make light applications is using 32 bits, the kind of applications that "consumers" are using today, and do not require resources. However, science or engineering applications are other history.

    What is happening with windows 10? Some IT friend just say Microsoft is reserving 64 bits for servers and 32 bits for PCs, is it true?

    They already have a 64-bit version. (At least I think so, I might be wrong. Did they do this since 2016 I thought the 64 bit version existed in 2016)

    I am an early adopter of Win 10 since the first beta version was released for the tester team. I have seven pcs running win 10. I believe all but one are running 64 bit versions. One or two are running the pro version. One pro version Sony laptop is dedicated just for Win 10 usage and beta testing. (it has been off-line since Mid May due to office switch and remodel) I had a crash while running a Google browser just a few minutes ago and was unable to close any google browser on the desktop or from the google window taskbar icon I had pinned to the taskbar. I opened up task manager using Ctrl Alt Del to see what was going on. I checked the memory usage to see that there were many google instances running and they had taken up more memory that this PC has (8 Gb ram). I then discovered that there was an OneDrive 32 bit running and there was another 32 bit program running.
    What the heck? I should have known long ago that OneDrive was running 32 bit/ Running 32 bit explains why my extensive use of OneDrive between computers on the internet has caused me to experience longer delays in syncing files than I expected. (Still much quicker than Google Drive---I wonder if GDr is running?? need to reboot now!

    32 Bit OneDrive really? I'm no fan of Apple but they are looking increasingly more attractive. Cone MS, get your thumb out!

    Yes please! It's ridiculous to have a main function like this only available in 32 bit.
