Asked at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/odoptions-oddesktop/onedrive-selective-sync-cant-change-settings-as/7249b4db-da1b-450b-8e21-37105e3ba620 and they had no idea (surprise surprise). Level 2 Microsoft support eventually told me to post an issue at onedrive's stackexchange site but that site is only for api questions.Yaakov commented
Occurs with me too - I use NTFS junctions. They work great for normal syncing, but the selective sync dialog doesn't work. This doesn't bother me day to day, but it is annoying when you want to make some changes (you can't as no OK button), and a deal breaker when unlinking/re linking an account as the selective sync dialog is an unskippable part of the set up wizard.
Just to clarify, you can be fully synced, then you open the dialog, *make no changes*, and yet the OK button is greyed out as apparently your selected option will leave you with a negative amount of space. The dialog doesn't realise that the stuff is downloaded already. The sync client itself knows, but the silly dialog doesn't.Yaakov supported this idea ·
