We must to be patient until the Q4 until we may use the NGSC (next Generation Sync Client). With the NGSC we will have no more the file-Limitation about 20.000 files. With the new OneDrive Client we are also will be able to sync Files up to 10 GB. But on the other hand,this means, Windows 10 will not have the NGSC on board. And with the NGSC you may be able to partial sync folders.
