New OneDrive for Business Sync Client announced
Microsoft announced a new OneDrive for Business Sync Engine at Microsoft Ignite that solves many pain points that we and many other customers have been facing.
Here are the highlights:
- Single Sync Engine for all OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, based on the rock solid consumer OneDrive codebase
- Selective Sync – allows you to sync only the folders and files you want
- No more 20,000 file limit
- Supports files up to 10GB each
- More disk space efficient
- More Admin controls – Ability to block Personal Sync and Sync from Un-Managed devices
Microsoft have also committed to it being available in “2015” – but there is no indication of when yet.
Either way, we’re very excited about the possibilities. We have been yearning for these features for a while and would love to see no more Sync Errors!
