I recently switched to Office 365 and One Dive as a means of creating, storing and accessing a set of common Office files from at least two different computers (additional access from my iPhone and iPad looked like a bonus), I could not understand why a document I updated on one computer did not contain those updates when I opened it on another. It took a while to figure out that OneDrive automatically downloaded a file when you opened it and it remained there on the local computer while ever it displayed a tick rather than a cloud icon alongside it in the OneDrive directory. I overcome the problem now by right-clicking on the tick icon and choosing Free up space which apparently uploads the file to the cloud and removes it locally/. If there is an easier way to have the file exclusively on the cloud and be able to work on it there I would love to know about it. I have discovered you can access OneDrive via a browser and work on it via the browser. However, my preference would be to use Office 365 whenever i am using either of my computers to update documents. My problem at the moment is that documents open in Office 365 as Read-only and I have know idea why nor how to stop them doing it? I envy you guys who have all this at your fingertips. Please help me if you can.
Dear Forum, I am currently testing the free version of Onedrive, planning scan and upload a number of old photos. However, I seem to have an issue with the format of the photos. Scanning them with my Canon Lide400 scanner and storing the scanned images as .TIFF they do now display correctly in oneDrive. When I upload a folder with .TIFF images and later try view them either as "album" of in the "file view" , when I click on one image in the folder it seems to freeze briefly before displaying the photo as "1 of 1" photos, i.e. I am not able to sweep to view the pictures in the folder or album. In order to view the next photo I need to go back to the thumbnail view and then scroll down to the next photo, then repeat the process. Having it like this it really impractical to have a huge number of photos in oneDrive. Tested with another format, and when I scan and store as JGPs before upload, I do not have this issue. Does anyone know why this happens? is it something with the .TIFF format that microsoft does not like? A scanned TIFF image is about 5MB, whereas a PGP is 500 kB, but I have not read anything about file size limitations in onedrive. The same pictures are displayed correctly in google images ... Hope someone can help with this... regards E
Some time ago. I was searching for a file in a normal place when I found it in C:\Users\------\OneDrive\Documents. I already use OneDrive and my OneDrive folder is in F:\ and syncs fine. Just now I saved a notepad file and that went in user-OneDrive instead of -----\Documents folder. I have also found the Desktop folder in the folder. I would like to know why this has happened and the repair to get the default for my office files and other windows files back where they should be. Also the Desktop folder. A solution would be to move the files/folders to where they should be and delete the OneDrive folder in C:\Users\micka\xxxxx\ but I have a feeling that this might screw things up. I'm running win 10 pro 64 bit v1809 Hope someone can help. No way would I want documents in my OneDrive folder potentially being uploaded to the cloud even though I don't use that OneDrive folder. I have uninstalled and reinstalled MS office 2010 but no change occurs, I am stumped so I ask the experts - thanks for reading
Earlier today, some users started reporting issues trying complete Windows 10 setup during the Out of Box Experience. If OneDrive is selected as the default location to save files, setup becomes non-responsive. Microsoft said in a tweet they are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it. They recommend users experiencing this problem file a report at the given link: https://t.co/SWI0nIX0Pz In the mean time, If you are setting up/signing into a Microsoft Account during installation, we recommend you setup a Local Account instead, then connect to a Microsoft Account after setup in Start > Settings > Accounts > Your info. Users will need to perform a cold reboot in order get Windows 10 responsive again. https://www.groovypost.com/howto/setup-configure-new-windows-10-pc-clean-installation/
