    When my MacOS High Sierra external drive containing the OneDrive folder gets disconnected, there is a severe memory leak when the app resynchronises; grows by approximately 1GB for every 20 files, yes thats one Gig for every Twenty files.

    As I have about sixty thousand files, this means repeatedly stopping and restarting the app, given it consumes so much memory, and swap that no other application functions

    We have been working on several memory leak fixes recently. One of the main ones was fixed with Standalone version 19.086.0502.0008 and Store version 19.103.0527.0003. If you are not on one of those builds or higher, please update first. If you are still experiencing issues after updating, let us know. We will continue to focus on performance improvements, including memory utilization.

    I see a memory leak as well on MacOS High Sierra (10.13.6), but in different circumstances

    I have my OneDrive folder on an external drive, contains around 60,000 files. App normally runs in c200mb.

    If I forget to mount the physical drive and start OneDrive, then the recovery is a nightmare.

    App counts up all the files to be synch'ed, this number then drops by 2 and increments by 1, drops by 2, increments by 1.... at a rate of about one of the cycles a second!

    Occasionally it finds a file to sync, which is a different issue!

    All the time the memory use grows, after a reduction in the number number shown as 'processing changes' by about 2-300 files its well over 20GB

    When the memory use means everything else slows to a crawl then stop it and restart it. So I have to repeatedly stop the app, restart it.
