Microsoft, this should be a no brainer:
- Less internet bandwidth consumed
- Higher speeds
- Less stress on your servers
- Quicker availabilty of files that just changes on Computers on the same network (Family which are linked or Laptop, tablet, phones, etc. of the same user)
Microsoft would "lose" control over the files and can no longer "see" them.
If this is the reason why Microsoft is not doing it, I am getting scared... :-(
There ARE users out there with slow internet connection AND plenty of data:
I.e. My upload speed is 96kB per second....
I have a 10TB drive which is filled to about 80%
I have multiple PCs at different locations. If there would be LAN sync I could just move the PC to the same location temporarily and would have a new PC up and running in no time! So far I do it with cloning the disk and hope Onedrive does not double the files (which happens on many occasions)
