We are working on changes to improve the experience when syncing large file collections.Edward Rush commented
How about just improving it period. I sync about 6 gig of my 500 G in storage to my Surface. I have one server that syncs the entire REPO. The Server seems to sync fine cause all it does is download so I always have a machine with my entire REPO available offline. My surface with only current work, and selected folders takes forever to determine what has changed. I pause syncing while working, and start it back when I am not working. With minor file changes, it takes hours to resolve differences. I pay for storage and I am considering going back to DropBox cause OneDrive Performance is terrible. This is truly horrid software to keep files synchronized. I liked it cause it works with groove for music as well. But I am getting sick of this software hanging up with no progress indicators as it works to compare file differences. It just says "OneDrive is Updating Files", "Processing changes"
