    Hi all,So I've tried so many solutions to fix this problem, but I can't seem to resolve it.I'm running Windows 11 pro and I have a MS 365 account with 1tb of OneDrive storage.For some reason Onedrive is permanently stuck trying to sync 19 files and it never finishes, but is constantly accessing the SSD drive Task manager shows 0.5MB/sec all the time.I've tried resetting OneDrive, it reprocessed all the files, then got stuck on the same 19 filesI tried uninstalling, reinstalling, reinstalling an older version and it still won't finish syncing.It's also incredibly slow at syncing any new files

    :)

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

    OneDrive constantly syncing 19 files and never finishing. Windows 11 [​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.

    A process called "Microsoft OneDrive Setup" is constantly using 15-20% of my CPU for the third day in a row now

    It could be that OneDrive is not yet finished setting up. If you're signed into Windows 10 with a Microsoft account, we suggest that you check if OneDrive is set up completely. Here's how to finish setting up OneDrive:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Click the OneDrive folder. In the Finish setting up OneDrive, select the files and folders you want to sync to this computer.

    Win 10 Onedrive not syncing and constantly searching for changes


    I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Now Onedrive will not sync new files to the cloud. In addition the Cloud icon is constantly "looking for changes".
