    OneDrive Update seems odd.

    On my computer, I get this message pop up "Microsoft One Drive - An update is required, to continue using OneDrive, you need to update it.". When I click on Update oneDrive, the PC downloads an exe file from https://oneclient.sfx.ms/OneDriveSetup.exe

    Does anyone know if this is legitimate and how can I tell? I'm normally used to updates coming from Software Updater.

    Thank you

    Norton Safe Web says the page is OK, and DNS resolution says it's an Akamai edge server (something MS uses quite often for file distribution).

    That said, I don't see anything about grabbing a file from akamai instead of WU for One Drive anywhere. I tried to grab the file for virus inspection but it's apparently no longer available. When in doubt, though -- and you had good reason to feel that way -- you're ALWAYS better off not downloading (or installing) a suspect or potentially suspect file.
    Interestingly if you check the name of the .exe file it corresponds to the download for the One Drive Sync Client for which the following item appears online at https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-us/download/:

    It says that Windows 10 doesn't need to install this, so that would amplify your concerns about installing this item on a system running Windows 10.
