OneDrive (Business) - Scanning time a deal breaker :(

Postby morles » Fri Nov 10, 2017 5:19 am

Hello,

Trialling SyncBackPro for Onedrive (Business) sync after a flaky experience with official OneDrive app that freezes when lock files are detected. it failed to even upload my whole data set (~800GB) and i was very concerned any hiccup would force me to redownload the 800GB. i was very impressed with SyncBackPro doing a great, reliable job of initial sync.

I was hoping to use Intelligent Synchronization in real-time with "Run this profile when any files or directories are changed...."

devastated to see it has to re-scan the entire OneDrive cloud each time :( takes almost 9 hours. i see this "problem" referenced in older posts - and the official response is "how else would SyncBackPro work out the changes? it must full scan".

Surely OneDrive (and other cloud) APIs allow you to query "list file changes since xx:xx (last run)" ?? and use that instead of a full scan?

any solution? or any solution in the pipeline?

CORRECTION!!! it does appear to do clever API stuff! just did a scan and sync in <10 minutes. awesome.

first step it says "Getting Delta Objects" (or something) which must a list of modified folders on OneDrive. it the scans this subset.

im guessing -
  • initial sync upload +800GB
  • first sync - OneDrive reports all folders have changed because they are all new, so a full scan occurs - 9 hours in my case
  • third sync - true delta. only appears to only scan changed folders

super happy. scanning the local drive is now the "slow" problem i might slice up the folders a bit more

very viable solution. way better than official OneDrive app (for server - large drives)
