After some problems, publishing was stopped and the date was moved to mid-May (end of April before). I myself have the problem that with some synchronizations only the error message shown at the end of the article is displayed. This happens with files shared with me and "older" syncs.
Microsoft has published a new insider version of the Next Generation Sync Client with the version 20.052.0311.0006. With this version the version history is now rolled out, which was already announced one month ago.
Not only the Sync Client has become more intelligent, but also the Windows File Explorer (Mac Finder) has become more intelligent. One could also speak of a third level. Because in the web browser it has always been possible to view the versions. But for this I had to switch to the web browser. This is no longer necessary. Of course, I could open the file with the corresponding app and then open the file with Word, Excel or PowerPoint and display the history there
Previous options for displaying the version history:
2. Inside of the Word, Excel or PowerPoint App
and then ….
3. In the OneDrive App
4. Inside Windows File Explorer
Select file, right click and then the version history is available with another click. And it should be mentioned again: The version history is also retrieved, although the file is only available in the cloud.
Where does the Windows history work?
It works for synchronized files in
- OneDrive for Business
- OneDrive Personal (consumer)
Yes, although there is no SharePoint behind OneDrive Personal, there is a version history in OneDrive Personal. But only up to 25 versions!
It does not yet work for
– old synchronized SharePoint document libraries.
– for synchronized files shared with me
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
The user then receives the error message shown on the left.
