We’re currently validating the 64-bit version of OneDrive internally. We have not yet started rolling it out to public rings. Stayed tuned for more info soon!

This would be nice indeed. I have a LOT of files (node_modules). Because I am unable to exclude folders (as Microsoft doesn't want people to be able to exclude certain types of folders), all my node_modules folders are being indexed and uploaded to OneDrive. Since there are so many files, OneDrive's memory usage gets over 2GB and then crashes.
Please make a decision because the product is pretty much useless for developers now. I would say there are 2 options.
1. Make the application 64-bit. Not because it is unacceptable in 2016, but because some people have more files than the 2gb memory allocation can handle.
2. Make the application use less memory, maybe by keeping an on-disk cache?
3. Let people exclude directories. I don't need my node_modules uploaded to OneDrive.
I would personally say that option 2 and 3 together would be the best. But maybe there are other reasons to do otherwise. The fact is though, that OneDrive now crashes about every 2 hours, which actually is unacceptable for a product like this.
