Microsoft has published with KB3115163 another update for the “old” Synchronization Client Groove.exe.
Last month I have written here, that we have to explain a little time with Groove.exe. But we see light on the end of the tunnel (end of year 2016) for the Office 365 Users, although the on SharePoint premise users have to wait a little bit longer.
So you should install this new patch.
Which errors do they fix with KB3115163?
|KB3115163||CPU usage may increase if the folder hierarchy changes conflict between the client and the server. This update also includes improvements for folder creation and moves when multiple devices are synchronizing the same library.|
I remembered, that I have this behavior in the past. And I was unable to understand the behavior.

Be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn’t 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:
- Open an Office 2013 application, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
- On the File menu, select Account.
- For Office 2013 Click-to-Run installations, an Update Options item is displayed. For MSI-based installations, the Update Options item isn’t displayed.
You will found the file groove.exe here: X:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15
So the version of the file should be 15.0.4833.1000 or higher.
