  2. how to disable Onedrive "metered network" notifications?

    I've got my network connection set as metered so my windows 10 doesn't hog all of my bandwidth when it needs to download something (when set as metered, windows updates and such pause automatically when programs on the pc or other devices on the network
    are utilizing my 672Kbp/s max bandwidth home internet connection. Needless to say that this is a highly desired behavior). With the connection set as metered, I keep getting notifications from onedrive that my connection is metered. I don't really use onedrive
    atm, but I might use it in the future. Is there any way to disable the notifications without disabling onedrive or changing my connection settings?

  3. OneDrive paused automatically

    Are you quite sure there isn't some way to override the automatic pausing of OneDrive when Metered Connection is set? Was it the Fall Creators Update that automatically paused OneDrive when a Metered Connection is being used? It wouldn't be so much of an
    issue if the Procrustes Creators Update hadn't taken away the choice of whether to automatically download and install new updates other than by using a Metered Connection.

    Enable or Disable Automatic Pause OneDrive Sync on Metered Network

    OneDrive paused automatically

    I am using Windows 10 home and OneDrive personal, and a laptop and use WiFi for the internet.

    I constantly create documents and directly save them to my laptop's OneDrive - Document folder. And the documents will automatically saved to the OneDrive Cloud storage.

    Because I don't like Windows 10 Updates automatically pushed to my laptop, I set my WiFi as metered.

    Now OneDrive got "paused" automatically. It is a pain to have to remember to re-sync OneDrive manually all the time.

    Is there a way, in my situation, to stop OneDrive to "pause" automatically?

    Thanks

    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.
