There is no need to make OneDrive 64 bits. The performance increase would be very minimal and it would actually use more memory (because of 64 bit pointers). Also, making an application 64 bits can actually DECREASE performance because since the code segment is bigger (due to 64 bit pointers again) it might not fit in the processor's caches anymore.
