Zipping, OneDrive for Business, Download

Sometimes it’s easy. You have to wait. And here the Big Brother have learned from his little brother. I’m speaking about OneDrive for Business and OneDrive (Personal). In OneDrive (Personal) the functionality of automatically packing files into a zip file, if you select more than one file and the Download was implemented a long time ago.

1 Select more than one file
2 Click on Download
3 All selected files are zipped into a file OneDrive_XXXX.XX-XX.zip and you may save it. The message differs depending on the browser and its settings,

Microsoft rolled out this new function to all tenants. Thank you Microsoft, why not earlier.

OneDrive for Business | April Update (engl)


OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

Microsoft has released on 4/5/2016 an Update for the OneDrive for Business Sync-Client (Groove.exe)

KB3114953

Fixes the following issues:

  • If a SharePoint 2016 on-premises OneDrive for Business library is being synchronized, the local folder is created under the SharePoint parent and the right-click menu share action doesn’t work as expected. After you install this update, the library will no longer be created under a SharePoint parent and you can share files from the locally synched folder.
  • After you restore the synchronization in OneDrive for Business, the repair feature may not work as expected.

So that’s only 10 Minor steps, but internal test with SharePoint server 2016, which is not released yet, have shown, that there will be some issues with Synchronization.

the picture shows, which files are updated.

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:

    1. Open an Office 2013 application, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
    2. On the File menu, select Account.
    3. For Office 2013 Click-to-Run installations, an Update Options item is displayed. For MSI-based installations, the Update Options item isn’t displayed.

    After the Update it should be shown Version 15.0.4815.1000 or higher

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

So it’s quit. Quite with information about the old “Groove” client. But now Microsoft has released the Update KB3114509 for OneDrive for Business.

the description is narrow:

An error has occurred while attempting to synchronize this document library. Please get in touch with your helpdesk.

So administrators and more often the users have received  this error message and this bug should be fixed with this update.

You see, that the groove.exe is the same. But there are more DLL’s , that I have not monitored:

    C2R Version von Office

it should be version 15.0.4787.1000 or higher (if you use Office 2013)

 

Conclusion:

You will find only 2 lines of description in the original KB article. Microsoft is fully focused on the Next Generation Sync Client. But companies still require the  "old" Groove client.

OneDrive for Business | KB 2910935 (December patch) and more

11. Dezember 2014 Hinterlasse einen Kommentar

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

Each month, also in December, Microsoft released a patch for OneDrive for Business. The Update has the number KB 2910935. You may read the description here.

Responsible for the synchronization of data is OneDrive for Business, you may download a 32 Bit or 64 Bit Version here.

If you search on your local machine for a program with the name OneDrive for Business, you will have no success. To describe why, we have to look into the past:

Groove a peer to peer program, sync data over the firewall of your company. Founder was Ray Ozzie and the company named Groove Networks
SharePoint Workspace 2010 Microsoft overtook groove networks, renamed the product Groove to SharePoint Workspace 2010 and included new functionality. You still have had the peer to peer function, also you may have had sync data to you local machine, coming from SharePoint Server 2010. This was the first, you sync data from a SharePoint
SkyDrive Pro the successor of SharePoint Server 2010 was SharePoint Server 2013. And also SharePoint Online, which is part of Office 365. With SkyDrive Pro you may sync data not only from SharePoint Server 2013 (on-premise) but also you may sync your document libraries from SharePoint online to your local machine.
OneDrive for Business Microsoft must rename the little brother “SkyDrive” due to a judgment. They renamed SkyDrive to OneDrive, and SkyDrive Pro to OneDrive for Business.

Therefore you will find the program Groove.exe still on your windows machine: “X:\Programm Files\Microsoft Office\Office 15” and this file and others are involved with the December patch KB 2910935.

Groove.exe (November Update) Groove.exe (December Update)
settings of Groove.exe: Version November 2014, 15.0.4667.1000 Settings Groove.exe: Version December 2014, 15.0.4675.1000
Version: 15.0.4667.1000
from 15.10.2014
Version: 15.0.4675.1000
from 12.11.2014

Many people are waiting for new functionalities, but Microsoft fix only problems, you will have at many situations: Reliability, Reliability and Reliability. So Microsoft tell us MVP’s at MVP Summit in Redmond. new functionalities were returned, first synchronization must first run without errors.

And with this update, two major problems have been addressed:

document libraries and enabled Checkin / CheckOut

Assume that you configure a SharePoint document library so that it requires the documents to be checked out before they can be edited. In this situation, you cannot sync or repair the library by using OneDrive for Business.


Move multiple folders

You sync a document library by using OneDrive for Business, and then you open the synced library folder in Windows Explorer.

You move many folders into another folder, and then let it sync.

In this scenario, when the sync finishes, not all folders are moved to the target folder.

 

Both cases were adjusted with the update KB 2910935.
