2 years on and it is still terribly painful to do a first sync of a large file structure. The messages are frustrating e.g. "Downloading at 0.0 KB/s 1 file remaining" when it still actually needs to upload 140,000 files! And the continuous title, "One Drive is updating files". Apparently it indexes all the files before uploading - if so, it would be nice if it said that. And secondly, the upload speed is painful - much slower than my broadband speed. It would be nice to have a "High Priority" tick box, where we could tell it to sync with high priority instead of just being low impact in the background. Instead of using 2.5% of CPU it could use way more and we could set it to transfer files at high speed overnight, etc.
