Syncing over LAN
This would allow multiple PCs / Devices with the same OneDrive account to sync over the local LAN network. This makes a huge difference when setting a new PC (or restoring one) as you can transfer 100's of gigs over the LAN much faster and without impacting your Internet bandwidth cap.
We don’t have a timeline yet but it’s still on our radar.
Jonathan Martin commented
Keeping this current. This SO needs doing.
This is the major holdup for us switching over from Dropbox. Our field personnel are often in poorly connected areas and LAN sync keeps them running with minimal interruptions. Like Teams, SharePoint, Flow... y'all are so close, but there are critical features you're years behind on!
Also, what's the point of voting if our limited votes are tied up for years of inactivity?
Svein Arild Kolbeinsen Skogen commented
Voted x3. They managed to do this with windowsupdate, so why not with Onedrive (given the dropbox appifaction fiasco, I suspect they are ... feeling the load right now)
Jason R commented
Staggered this isn't available, despite having been requested for over 5 years and nearly 6k votes!!
Maurizio Delmonte commented
agreed with the rest of the comments here: a major reason to still keep using Dropbox here.
So the users have spoken, what say you Omar?
HELLO MICROSOFT, ARE YOU LISTENING??
Please implement LAN sync.
How come this was not implemented from the very start? user's do not keep 300mb like in the old days. Nowadays user's keep 50GIG+ data in their personal drives even when establishing tight policies such as 2GIG quota allowed they still want 100GB+ in a business model at the personal level I couldn't not backup my 4TB via OneDrive yet unless I separate this into 8 different user's accounts.

This is the only feature keeping me from moving our entire production file system from Dropbox!
having multiple users accessing and updating a few 1Gb files 20-30 times/day each is a nightmare to sync via the cloud.
Still not doing it???
George Cretu commented
This needs to be added in.
It's a pain when having multiple PC in the same network all to wait on the file to be pushed in the cloud and downloaded back to them.
@Omar Shahine @Ryan Hoge
This is imperative!
FIVE years after you noted it wasn't high on your backlog even though it's the second most voted topic and it's still not implemented!!! What does this say about Microsoft's understanding of their client's requirements and the software features?
And Microsoft just ignore the comments. There's a new preview just been released and it's STILL not implemented. WTF?!?! Every OneDrive user should be seriously mad about this. It's NOT good enough.
LAN sync option would make file synchronistaion SO much faster. As it is, users have to wait for their file to sync to the cloud before the other users gets the right version. This causes lots of conflicts with versions when two or more people are working on the same file.
Any update regarding this matter?
It would be awesome if OneDrive would support this...
Any update in the last 5 years?
+3 It's time to reconsider adding this feature to OneDrive!
I gave 3 votes each to LAN request! Please bring it in!!!!
This would make the product as good as dropbox. It lags way behind it because of this reason.
Elliott Neiman commented
This would drastically improve sync times at our office.
Please reconsider this into "boom! it's done"
This would be a much loved feature for both my personal devices sync and the multiple work devices I am required to use.
It's a very important feature for us, shouldn't be too hard to implement. Any updates on this?
