  1. Excel file is not auto-syncing on OneDrive

    I have an Excel file I always use to track my budget. It used to always auto-sync with OneDrive, but now it won't. I have to save it manually every time. Does anyone know a fix?

    excel not auto recovering and manually saving


    The concern you have encountered with Excel not auto saving may be due to a corrupted file or a misconfigured setting.

    May we ask if you have 3rd party software running when using Excel? If yes, we suggest to temporarily disable it to isolate the issue.

    Any changes made on your computer prior to the issue?

    Have you tried any possible troubleshooting steps? If yes, what are those steps and did you get any error messages?

    You can turn-on the auto save option by the following steps:

    • Open Excel
    • Go to File then Options
    • Under Save option, check the 'Save AutoRecovery information in every' option
    the best way to check when auto save is disabled is to hover over the toggle and read the reason that the popup tool tip identifies. Simply follow the steps provided in this


    According to this
    the autosave function will be disabled when the file is in the old file format .xls.

    Kindly keep us posted with the results.

    OneDrive Placeholders are coming back, now called On-Demand Sync

    Excel file is not auto-syncing on OneDrive [​IMG]

    "At Ignite 2016, Microsoft has just announced that it is bringing Placeholders back to OneDrive on Windows 10. Now, they are not called Placeholders anymore — Microsoft is renaming the feature to “On-Demand Sync” which makes a lot more sense than “Placeholders”.

    The company demoed this feature at Microsoft Ignite today, and it works just like it used to previously. As you can see in the screenshot above, the files stored in OneDrive weighed in around 9GB, but the actual size on disk was only around 3MB which is really neat. Of course, this feature isn’t anything new as it was available back in the Windows 8 days. However, Microsoft removed the feature with Windows 10, and after lots of waiting, they are finally coming back.

    In case you are not familiar with OneDrive Placeholders, it’s a pretty neat feature which lets you see all of your OneDrive files on your computer — but they are not actually downloaded on your PC. When you open them, OneDrive will download the files on-demand, saving your local space which is really useful, especially if you have a PC that doesn’t have a lot of storage.

    While Microsoft didn’t announce when exactly On-Demand Sync will be available to OneDrive users, we suspect it will be available with Windows 10 Redstone 2 — which is expected to arrive early next year.

    Nokia Lumia 520 auto syncing not working

    OneDrive on my Nokia 520 is not auto syncing my photos from Camera Roll. I have gone through all the steps repeatedly. It seems I can only manually upload 1 picture at a time. Any suggestions?
