Large Sharepoint Libraries making MacOS unstable
When adding a large (60gb ish) to Mac OneDrive Client (19.012.0121.0009) we are experiencing instability on the host system (10.14.3 (18D109)) until the library has synchronised even though 'files on demand' is enabled.
The Sync process is taking ages on machines with fast stable internet connections.
Synchronising two librarries - one with about 92.000 files (private) and the other with about 80.000 files (business plan 2). The private library is synchronising well without trouble. The other needs weeks with constand signouts and extreme slowness in comparing whats on the cloud and whats on my mac, starting the process at the 2nd of July, it is still far from getting ready!

We have over 1 million documents in a SharePoint online document library. As get get close to completing the synchronizing process, OneDrive begins to slow down immensely. The entire computer also struggles to do simple tasks (i.e. type in MS Word) until OneDrive eventually crashes.
To re-launch OneDrive, it takes several minutes to sign back in, begin the synchronization process until eventually the application starts slowing down the entire computer again.
This is definitely a huge concern. If a document library can hold 30 million items, the tool that is supposed to grant quick access to these files should be able to handle this as well.
If this major issue could be addressed, it would substantially increase the adoption in my company, and i'm sure, many more companies as well.
