    I must be doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what else I should do. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Can't stop large Outlook 2016 files from synching with OneDrive

    OK I solved my own problem.
    First I moved the files out of the OneDrive folder, deleted the folder, and they disappeared from the synch although the folder was still in the Cloud. So I deleted the Cloud folder too. I then created the folder again in OneDrive and put the folders back in there but selected not to Synch it. That failed as it showed an error about two folders the same and synching also started again.
    So, I moved the folder and outlook files permanently out of the OneDrive folder and that's sorted it.
    OneDrive seems so inflexible and isn't user friendly if you ask me!

  3. Thumbnails of ICO files down't show up if stored in OneDrive


    Ever since Microsoft OneDrive updated to Version 2017 (Build 17.3.7059.0930), all my PDF files that I have stored show thumbnails which never happened before. Great.

    However, all my ICO (*.ico) files no longer show thumbnails after they are synched like they used to. Here is a screenshot I took showing the new icons I saved yesterday (which haven't been synched) and older ones that are synched.

    How do I get my icon thumbnails back?

    What I've already done:

    1. Rebuild icon cache (Go to C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer; delete all iconcache_*.db files)
    2. Icrease size of icon cache (Regedit; KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer; New String Value "Max cached icons"; Set to 8MB "8192")

    File History Not Backing Up OneDrive Local Files

    Thank you for sharing this information. I followed the steps, but there was no change in the issues I am experiencing with file history backup of synched OneDrive files. I tried turning off, resetting, and re-configuring File History; it backed up some files
    but not most.

    Thanks!
