Next Generation Sync Client | new Version 17.3.6517.0809

image_thumb4 OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

Microsoft has released a new Version of the Next Generation Sync Client (NGSC) for OneDrive and OneDrive for Business with the Version Number 17.3.6517.0809 and you may download the new Version from the Microsoft Download site. But you should do it only, unless you do not receive it automatically.(All my clients were updated automatically)

The Update Automatism is different from the known Update mechanism (Update, WSUS and C2R [Click 2 Run].

My Criticisms to Microsoft:

  • Less technical information about this mechanisms
  • less (technical) information about changes
    So now we have the following picture:
Device / Web NGSC Version
Microsoft OneDrive Download Site 17.3.6517.0809
Microsoft Office Change Log 17.3.6517.0809

What has been changed?

only one line:

Fixed a few regression issues that caused the sync client to crash.

That’s minimalistic. Why does the size of the OneDriveSetup.exe has increased more than twice? (17.3.6514.0720 = 8.829 KB versus 17.3.6517.0809 =20.253 KB)


This time exist three different Sync-Clients to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Team Site (Office 365) and Groups (Office 365)  and the different on Premise Variants. And if you use Windows 10 OS, you have installed the NGSC on your device.
