    Disable OneDrive Pausing Sync In Battery Saver Mode

    Hi.

    I don't want to uninstall OneDrive. I use it.

    What I want to do is to stop OneDrive from automatically pausing when it goes into battery save mode.

    Surely, MS gives the user an option to enable it or disable it. It is very annoying, and I don't have the time to be messing around re-enabling it manually all the time. I simply want to turn "automatic pause" off.

    Provided I follow the answer you are looking for, left click on the OneDrive icon in the task bar, click on "More", click on "Settings", go to the "Settings" tab, and uncheck the "Automatically pause sync when this device is in battery saver mode".

  5. Disable OneDrive Pausing Sync In Battery Saver Mode

    I gave you exactly the correct answer which has worked for everyone else on your issue. There is no other way to disable OneDrive Pausing in Battery Saver mode except to enable the Notification which always offers a way out. You said nothing about receiving
    this Notification so I assumed you didn't have it set. Instead of interacting with me you gave me a bad rating as though I hadn't taken the time to try to help you with the ONLY answer.

    If you want to complain to Microsoft use the Feedback Hub app in Start Menu where developers are tasked to process consumer feedback. But Microsoft will not even see it here because this is a tech forums where we are mostly volunteers trying to help solve
    your problems.

    There's also already feedback started in this location for you to add to:

    https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913522-on...

    If you've enabled the OneDrive Notification and miss it's popup, you can check the Action center at right end of Task Bar which is where Notifications are queued until cleared.
