Daniel und sein Organisqationsteam hatte gerufen und viele sind dem Aufruf gefolgt. Teilehmer und Sprecher haben sich schon am Freitag in Bremen eingefunden um den vielen Vorträgen und Workshops zu folgen.

Für die geleistete Arbeit vor Ort ein rießiges Dankeschön. Denn wer noch nie eine solche Veranstaltung organisiert hat, weiss gar nicht, wie viel Arbeit dahintersteckt!

Am Samstag haben meine MVP Kollegen Thomas Gölles und Stefan Bisser erstmals ganz unspektakulär ein neues Projekt “Mr.OneDrive’s BOT” den Teilnehmern präsentiert. Hier könnt Ihr mehr erfahren und sehen. 4 Minuten Zeit ist das Video lang. Ragnar Heil auch gleich einen Podcast eingespielt und noch am Samstag veröffentlicht. Hört einfach mal rein, sind keine 10 Minuten Zeit, die Ihr investieren müsst.  Und wer an der Preview von Mr.OneDrive’s Bot teilnehmeen möchet, muss sich nur ein paar Fragen beantworten

Am frühen Nachmittag habe ich dann den Administratoren erzählt, warum und was es mit den Gruppenrichtlinien für OneDrive auf sich hat. Heir gibts das Slidedeck.

Danke an alle Teilnehmer … und bis zum nächsten Jahr


Daniel and his organizational team called and many followed the call. Participants and speakers came to Bremen on Friday to follow the many lectures and workshops.

A huge thank you for the work on site. Because if you have never organized such an event, you don’t even know how much work is involved!

On Saturday my MVP colleagues Thomas Gölles and Stefan Bisser presented a new project “Mr.OneDrive’s BOT” to the participants for the first time in a very unspectacular way. Here you can learn and see more. The video is 4 minutes long. Ragnar Heil also recorded a podcast and released it on Saturday. Just listen, there are not 10 minutes that you have to invest. And if you want to take part in the preview of Mr.OneDrive’s Bot, you only have to answer a few questions

In the early afternoon, I told the administrators why and what the OneDrive Group Policies are all about. Heir there is the sliding deck.

Thanks to all participants … and see you next year

The next step – my personal BOT

2. März 2020 1 Kommentar

Mr.OneDrive's BOT

A few decades have passed. I’ve worked with IT for the past 25 years. In the different areas. Of course I got involved when the Internet came into being. Not at the forefront. But I can still remember the days when HTML was announced. Where every page was created manually. Where there were no templates yet. So I also had my own website. At some point I changed over. On a blog. And I’ve been blogging since October 2010. Now in two languages. More and more about one topic: About the technology of cooperation. Groove, SkyDrive and now OneDrive. So over 950 articles were created. Individual sections that are not able to describe the possibilities and scenarios that differ from many companies. Of course, my blog will find the people who can use a search engine. If you know what they’re looking for. Because searching needs to be learned. At some point Microsoft gave me the nickname Mr.OneDrive. And now everyone knows me under this name around the planet.

But with the many small and large events and conferences, I only ever reach a small number of people. Even less, but more intensive are, of course, all-day OneDrive workshops on site. Not only can I see the question mark in the eyes of the participants here, I can also respond intensively and quickly. Individually. And it doesn’t matter whether the company has 20 or 100,000 employees. Yes, I can be bought.

I don’t need a website (anymore). Because the content is static, it has to be renewed again and again. The maintenance is (very) complex. And actually, the manufacturer should have documentation. And at OneDrive, Microsoft has now published an impressive number of articles at But how many people do not know exactly what you are looking for when it comes to the interaction of the individual technical components in the collaboration in all its facets. And even a blog cannot help because it only shows individual sections.

Unfortunately, my daily workshops also have a disadvantage because there are too many companies and I unfortunately only speak two languages. But the technology is with the cloud and AI (artificial intelligence) makes it possible to clone myself. Or to take it to the next level. At least as far as my knowledge of working with OneDrive is concerned. And not just in the two languages, but in more than 50 languages. Around the clock. for 24 hours. Because Mr.OneDrive’s bot doesn’t need sleep.

Everyone will be able to install the bot within Microsoft Teams from the Microsoft Store. And then I am ready and willingly provide information. Anytime. In (almost) every language.

Before you start looking, slowly. I still cannot connect the PC to my brain and transfer the thoughts. This will also take a while with bot development. From the idea in July 2019 in a small feedback session with two MVP colleagues, it took a long time before Thomy Gölles and Stephan Bisser confronted me with the first bot prototype at SharePoint Saturday in Munich at the end of November 2019. And I’ve been collecting questions since mid-December. Questions about OneDrive and OneDrive for Business. And write down the answers. Of course with pictures. And links. To my blog. Or to the original documentation from Microsoft. There are still a few stumbling blocks to be cleared out of the way. I’ll write about that too.

There is still a little time left. Until the first version of the bot is ready for testing. Stay tuned and fill out the this form to be one of the first to get the BOT for Microsoft Teams (PreView).

UserVoice: Save and Restore current OneDrive configuration

UserVoice: Save and Restore current OneDrive configuration

Your harddisc has crashed. After the replacement you have to install your OneDrive Pesronal and OneDrive for Business and all the diffrent connections manually. Same procedure, if you got a new device.


OneDrive for Business

And you know, there are a lot of settings:

  • Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to windows
  • Automatically pause sync when this device is on a metered network
  • Display notifications when people share with me
  • Warn me before removing files from the cloud
  • Notify me when sync is auto-paused
  • Save space and download files as you use them

for each account/location: Choose folders settings

Manage Backup

  • Upload rate
  • Download rate
  • Use Office applications to sync Office files that I open
  • Sync conflicts
  • Insider version
    Yes, several settings may be controlled via group Policies, but not all .

    OneDrive Personal (Consumer)

  • Choose folders
  • Personal Vault Lock time
  • Photos and videos
  • Screenshots
  • Upload rate
  • Download rate
  • Use Office applications to sync Office files that I open
  • Sync conflicts


User Voice request:

Save and Restore the configuration to the cloud

client Save/restore  from cloud
OneDrive for Business ODFB Configuration  with device id
OneDrive Personal Onedrive Configuration: with Device ID


      This could save so much time, individuals or enterprise companies.

OneDrive Issues with Windows 10 Insider 19564.1005

15. Februar 2020 3 Kommentare

Windows 10, Build 19564.1005, OneDrive Bug

This is only for people, using Windows 10 in the Insider channel (19564.1005).OneDrive (Next generation Sync Client) does not work anymore. It starts, you find the app in Taskmanager, but then it consumes up to 35% CPU power, no Icon established in the notification area. You got no error message.

So for me it looks for an authentification error, and there is no workaround this time.
Microsoft has to be informed about this bug.

If You work (heavy) with OneDrive, you should not install  this Isider Build of Windows 10 or go back to the old version of Windows 10.

[Update 02/16/20]

So I got some information from friends around the globe. The only way is hard, and you need a Office Insiders version of your Sync client with the version 20.033.0213.0001. But if you have this version of OneDriveSetup.exe, you got an error, which says, you cannot install it, bevore you have deinstalled the old version. Means Deinstall the old version AND the configuration. And then you have to configure your stuff manually.

[Update 02/20/20]

Microsoft has shown reaction. in two diffrent ways. First, the OneDrive Product Group has published a new Version of the Next Generation sync Client: 20.028.0206.0003 and Second, the supposed culprit, The Windows Insider Version with the number 19564.1005 will be replaced with 19569.1000. And here OneDrive is running again.


Why Does Microsoft bring a new Windows Insider Version on a friday?
