We are working on changes to improve the experience when syncing large file collections.

Unfortunately I read this article after we did a big migration from a file server to SPO.
We got large Performance Issues with ODFB when we synchronized 450.000 Elements from SPO to the client (Files on Demand). The speed of the initial sync was OK but when we worked with these files, we had to wait 20-30 minutes until new / edited Office files were synced to the clients. Not acceptable for the users. In our misery we started to sync all Documents with OFDB on a fileserver again and connect the users via file share to the documents. We had to rebuild all Permissions and so on …
Very bad situation because we see a great potential in this way of syncing, and it is of cause one huge advantage of ODFB / SPO. But now we a really frustrated. Hope that MS is improving ODFB soon!!

Thanks for all the feedback. We’ve started the initial work on this one and we’ll update the status with more details as we get closer to knowing when we expect to ship this.
