  1. OneDrive stops syncing, tells me Windows need update


    I recently noticed that there's a yellow triangle in the OneDrive folder icon when I open Explorer. I try to use the taskbar icon to sync, but it's disappeared since who knows when. I open OneDrive manually through the Start page charms, and it tells me there is a Sync error and Windows needs updateI did read that OneDrive for Win 8.1 will stop being supported in 2022, and I will need to manually use the OneDrive web to deal with my files. Is this why? 3 weeks ago, the files still sync just fine. I haven't been paying attention to it, though, so I'm not sure when exactly did it stop.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.

    OneDrive stops syncing, tells me Windows need update

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

    OneDrive stops syncing, tells me Windows need update [​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.
