    OneDrive slow sync


    My broadband is 240Mbps, no throttleing but Onedrive is only downloading at 100kbps.

    Any reason for this.

    In the settings there's a network tab with don't limit / limit to options.
    Not inadvertently switched on limiting?

    I've noticed this too but currently it appears a lot, lot, lot faster if up and down is done through file explorer rather than a browser. idk.

    Hmmm, I wonder if there is some deliberate bandwidth limiting going on from the MS cloud side via browser or desktop OD client then?
    Are these issues on the free or paid for OD accounts?

    If you have another cloud storage service you could use IFTTT or Flow to automate a cloud to cloud backup/sync, so at least it all exists in two places in the cloud and then sync that back using the desktop client and see if it's any quicker. That way the time it takes for cloud to cloud is less important anyway, you aren't tying up any client resources at your end.
    I've got a few in place for Dropbox/OneDrive/Google Drive/Flickr that are manually triggered as and when I need them.
    You may get around any draconian bandwidth limitations that way but I'd be very surprised if any of the free services are unlimited bandwidth, they must have contention ratio caps in place as an incentive to go for the paid for options...

    Maybe. I just tried a 1.2Gb .exe and it topped out 69Mb drag&drop into the onedrive app, 374Mb peak into the file explorer onedrive folder. And this ibox popped up on a desktop.
