OneDrive for Business | August-Update (English Version)

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

Microsoft has released with his August-Updates 2 new Updates for OneDrive for Business. Due to my vacation days I’m a little late with this Blog post. One of the Updates resolved a problem with OneDrive for Business an the new OS Windows 10.

before  08/11/2015 after 08/11/2015
Groove.exe Version 15.0.4737.1000 Groove.exe Version 15.0.4745.1000

the name of the sync client for OneDrive for Business is groove.exe and located at  X:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15

You see, that Microsoft makes 8 minor steps

ODFB Update

Fixes the following issue:

The OneDrive for Business icon does not appear on the navigation pane of Windows Explorer on a Windows 10-based computer.

in Windows 10 you will have the early version of the Next Generation Sync Client (NGSC). This new sync-program will have one sync engine for both: OneDrive and OneDrive for Business. But at this time you only may sync to OneDrive (Personal). If you may work with SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business, you still need the old sync client called "Groove.exe”

Office Update

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • Office 2013 applications may crash because of an internal optimization task.
  • Because of the crash of the MSOSYNC.exe process that is part of being triggered by Windows Task Scheduler, Microsoft OneDrive for Business files sometimes cannot sync.
  • When the sync response that receives from the server is PathNotFound, the client should try for a configurable time, and then throttle for a configurable duration of time before retrying.
  • When you cannot upload or download files by using OneDrive for Business, you receive an inappropriate error message (for example, access denied).

Be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It does not apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home

To determine whether your Office installation is Click-to-Run or MSI-based, follow these steps:

  1. Start an Office 2013 application, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
  2. On the File menu, click Account.
  3. For Office 2013 Click-to-Run installations, an Update Options item is displayed. For MSI-based installations, the Update Options item is not displayed.
  4. C2R Version von Office

There should be version 15.0.4745.1001 or higher

2 Gedanken zu “OneDrive for Business | August-Update (English Version)

  1. I love your posts they have been a great help. We use RMM software and have been looking for a way to remotely detect if onedrive for business stops synchronising. Do you if there is a reg entry, readable log or event error that we could test for if one drive sync has a error?
