Personal vault needs to sync while locked
Personal vault needs to background sync while locked. Moved 2.5GB of data into personal vault, 20 minutes later it locked in the middle of first sync, then wouldn't let me unlock it ("something went wrong try again"). I had to completely disconnect my pc and reconnect to OneDrive to get it to start syncing again... and then none of my folders were in the vault because the folder hadn't finished the initial sync! Bad design Microsoft. Personal vault HAS to be able to sync while locked, otherwise it's pretty much useless. Oh and by the way, after disconnect/reconnect, I did find my files, unencrypted, in a hidden folder called Personal Vault-laptopname. This is concerning by itself... I believe it means files aren't encrypted until synced, which is not advertised anywhere.

I completely agree. I moved my Quicken personal financial files and both HOA's that I do the books for to the vault thinking it would be a great extra security measure. But after working on the data and it is trying to sync back to the vault, if it locks before the sync finishes then I don't have a secure backup.
