    Mac with Mojave and OneDrive uploading, is running soooooo slow it’s really hard to work... I have a fast iMac with 40gig ram but it now feels like a dinosaur 🦖 ... can this be improved? As I love the new updates with files on demand but the slowness is impeding work flow.

    same issue here:
    OneDrive over 100% CPU. blocks my Mac running with Mojave.

    Hi Microsoft, this is really ridiculous. I need OneDrive for work, but having it running is slowing my computer down massively.

    What is the status on this?

    I'm curious to know, how many are using case-sensitive filesystem Mac OS installed with case-insensitive partitions for this app?

  • Near commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I can't confirm other peoples issues with this app, but based on my experience it's a syncing issue. The app is constantly re-syncing to the server even when there isn't any noticeable changes. Typical Microsoft software.

    I have reported it via the 'contact support' tab in menu at top. I did get some response but none useful. One rep did acknowledge there was an issue and they were working on it but as usual wouldn't give a timeline for fix.

    Where is your response?

    Before adding any new features new OneDrive, you can improve it, by fixing this long standing bug.
    Someone from Microsoft should comment publicly on this issue and state whether there is anyone at all looking into this serious bug and trying to resolve it.
    You comment on other feature suggestions, a comment here would be appreciated.

    This has been an ongoing issues now for ALL versions of OneDrive on Mac going back to when it was SkyDrive - this is like 6 years for me.
    6 years of destroying my computing experience with poor battery life due to constantly excessive CPU usage.
    Get YOUR ******* **** TOGETHER

    CPU over 100, Storage over 100 and Energy +100. Slows Down the whole mac (Mojave 10.14.3)

    Cloud Space Only and Download on Usage. All files Synch is not better.

    2,8 GHz Intel Core i7
    16GB DDR3

    Please fix!

    Restarting is a short term solution. They usage will go back up again within a few minustes

  • Emiliano commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Very high memory usage on both High Sierra (6.4GB out 8GB available!) and Mojave (11.6 GB out of 16GB available!). Some posts on MS website suggest to restart the machine :-O. Macs are very stable machines and one should not need to restart them because OneDrive cannot handle itself. MS please fix!
