    We have a premiere support ticket. Ticket #:13695302

    A few weeks ago, several document libraries started syncing in Read Only mode. The cause – several columns suddenly became mandatory behind the scenes.

    The site content types show the columns as optional, but mandatory columns from the base content type have re-appeared behind the scenes – hidden from view.

    Fix
    1.Go to “Library Settings” > “Advanced Settings”
    2.In the first option, choose “No” on “Allow management of content type”
    3.Then the column will display the “Required” tab in the library settings as my following first screenshot
    4.Click the columns which are required, and change to option “Require that this column contains information” to No

    5.After changing the columns back to optional, the folder in OneDrive should become available immediately

    6.Then go back to “Advanced Settings”, and enable content types again

    7.Finally, check that the files are again editable in OneDrive.

    this is a bug. We have asked Microsoft to investigate what changed. We have this problem for thousands of libraries and the workaround is unacceptable.

    About a month or maybe two months ago, several document libraries started syncing Read Only. The cause – several columns suddenly became mandatory behind the scenes. We had a premiere support ticket #:13695302, but the only solution provided was a manual workaround and no admission that something had changed.

    The site content types show the columns as optional, but mandatory columns from the base content type have re-appeared behind the scenes – hidden from view.

    Fix
    1. Go to “Library Settings” > “Advanced Settings”
    2. In the first option, choose “No” on “Allow management of content type”
    3. Then the column will display the “Required” tab in the library settings as my following first screenshot
    4. Click the columns which are required, and change to option “Require that this column contains information” to No
    5. After changing the columns back to optional, the folder in OneDrive should become available immediately
    6. Then we could go back to “Advanced Settings”, then enable content type again
    7. Finally, check that the files are again editable in OneDrive.
