Better handling of sync collisions
Currently, when OneDrive cant sync a file from my PC because both the server version and the local version have been changed, OneDrive creates a duplicate file with the computer name appended.
OneDrive doesnt notify me at all that there was a sync error. It just creates these duplicates, sometimes for hundreds of files, fills up my storage and I have to sort our manually when I notice that suddenly my storage is low.
If there is a file collision, the OneDrive sync client should ask me wether to keep the server version or the local version. If there are multiple issues, I should be able to answer them all at once.

Many times the collision is not even real, I just save a file, keep working in it and after a while office shows a message saying "there is a newer file online", but I'm the only one working in this file!!!
so it suggest to save a copy or overwrite, over and over and over.
i am having this problem too. i was wondering why the file is always making a duplicate file and further
This is a problem for me. I have links between files, and if a local file has been renamed, the link opens the "server" version file, wich is older than the local (i´m working exclusively local).
Should notify at least when this occurs.
