RELEASE: OneDrive for Business Next-gen Sync Client

Big news in the world of OneDrive for Business:  We’re releasing the “next gen sync client”, which alleviates a number of pressing issues with syncing with OneDrive for Business:

  • Improves reliability & performance of file sync
  • Removes the 20,000 file sync limit
  • Enables selective sync
  • Support for large files up to 10Gb in size
  • etc.
    Microsoft OneDrive for Business December 2015 Product Updates

One important note for those with users that sync files with SharePoint document stores – not just OneDrive for Business stores:

  • The next gen sync client will NOT sync SharePoint document libraries.  This is coming in the future – more will be announced in Jan 2016.
  • As a workaround, you can run both the existing OneDrive for Business sync client (for Sharepoint sync) side-by-side with the next gen sync client. (for OneDrive for Business file store sync)
