OneDrive Personal Vault Needs To Allow Users To Lengthen 20 Minute Limit
Uploading large files like videos and other files is impossible when there is a 20 minute limit and it keeps timing out. OneDrive shows the drive is Inactive when in fact it is still active then I have to keep logging in. I spent days trying to upload files and it keeps logging out if I don't select to continue. If I am away from the computer it will log out and I don't even know it has been idle and not uploading.
Why does OneDrive consider it idle and inactive when it is trying to upload then the 20 minute limit interferes and halts the upload process. The 20 minute limit needs to either be expanded or allow users to set their own limits. Microsoft needs to stop controlling our computers based on their standards. The user should have that right and be allowed to set their own custom limit. I can see it logging out, but not while it is still uploading and needs hours not minutes to finish.
The experience has been very frustrating and for me a worthless addition if I cannot upload files without it timing out. I will never use it again and will not recommend it until this is fixed. I may also get rid of OneDrive for good. I liked the security, but it does no good if it does not remain active. Even after disabling Personal Vault, it still forced me to log in repeatedly the day I did it because it was taking so long to delete the files that remained in it. The next day it was back to normal.
I disabled the Personal Vault so I cannot give screen shots. I also could not find where the OneDrive logs are hidden. Make things easy for the user, Microsoft. You seem to forget we paid for our computers and we should have more rights. If I had a choice, I would go back to Windows 8.1 where the user had control not Microsoft
Moving a large number of files using File Explorer to the Personal Vault will cause File Explorer to crash and will cause sync problems should the Personal Vault window close before syncing is done.
Since syncing time is unpredictable I would like to see an option for Personal Vault to remain open until if finishes syncing, however long that takes (since I can't predict it myself or giving an outlandish amount of time to keep the window open)
