NGSC: new Colors and Symbols

Starting at December 1st, Microsoft has released a new version of the Next Generation Sync Client (NGSC) for a broader mass of people

The version of this Sync Client has the number 17.3.6705.1122. And you see, the colors have changed. And there are some new symbols

NGSC: new Symbols in  Windows Explorer

Behind the new symbol (Tenant Name without the word OneDrive) you see all local synced files from different document-libraries from Office 365. These are the following:

  • Team-Sites
  • Groups
  • Shared with me files

Now the whole thing looks a bit tidier.

What has been changed?

    This version will automatically received by more users. And with the version 17.3.6705.1122 you have  the Released Version AND the Preview Version. That’s not so easy to understand. But I have described it in the following blog post.

    Some of my blog post follower have written, that they have to go back to the old version, because they have some issues, but I could not confirm the bugs. But I know. the new client will be better and more stable with each new version.

    Remarks about version 17.3.6816.0313

    Blog readers have give me the information, that there is a new version of the Next Generation Sync Client available. Unfortunately not via download (Microsoft site).

And there is no change log entry available.  Windows 10 Creators Update is available for download here at 5th of April. It will come via Windows Update on 11th of April 2017…

    Remarks about version 17.3.6799.0327

    So I received this version on 4/5/17. No Microsoft Change log available. But you read here
    [04/13/17 Update] Microsoft has updated the site and included version 17.3.6799.0327

    Remarks about version 17.3.6798.0207

    There are so many versions between 6743 and 6798, but the only statement from Microsoft is: Fixed the top issues related to sync reliability and application stability.

    I have written a separate blog post about Version 17.3.6798.0207 with some new things
    You may read it here

    Remarks about Version 17.3.6760.0105

    Microsoft has corrected the old item. but there is no Download for this version

    Remarks about Version 17.3.6743.1212

    For this version there is no changelog. But it is a Preview version, and you should read all documentation about it.

    Remarks about Version 17.3.6720.1207

    This version is installed with the Windows 10 Insider Build 14986 or 14393. After theses releases Microsoft also has released this verion to other groups. There ois a issue with the US chnagelog website, becauuse Microsoft cut out the version 6705.1122 and replaced it with the version 17.3.6720.1207

    Remarks about Version 17.3.6705.1122

    You see in the Changelog, that this version is a released Version and a Public Preview with the same number. In the MAC Area you see, that there are two different versions. So for MAC User, they now have a separate Download Link, because Apple does not change the version, so there is still an old version there.

    The difference with both versions

    Both versions have the same functions, but the Preview has some more, but you have to do something manually to get the new functions from the Preview.

    The Release Version now will be available to more users around the globe.


    If you want to test the new functions of the Preview version, you have to read the following articles:

    Transition from the previous OneDrive for Business sync client for SharePoint sites

    This Microsoft Article will tell us, how we are able to switch from Groove.exe to Next Generation Sync client to sync data from Office 365 document libraries to local machnies. But also the restrictions.

    Get started syncing SharePoint sites with the new OneDrive sync client – Preview

    In this article, also from Microsoft, you see the manual steps, like to download and install a Registry-Key. You have to read this manual until the end, because there are some issues with the Internet Explorer.


    You get some new features from the Preview version, if you do some manual steps. And this is the reason, why the Next Generation Sync Client is not global available. These manual steps must be automatically….

    Remarks about Version 17.3.6674.1021

    The Version 17.3.6674.1021 was first published as a preview version and now as a Released Version. This Version will work only with Office 365. And I advise you urgently, to read the following Microsoft Document. So with this Version you may sync data from

    • OneDrive (Personal)
    • OneDrive for Business
    • Files in Document-Libraries at Team-Sites
    • Files in Document-Libraries at Groups
    • Files, Shared with me

    [Note 11/28/16]
    Keep in mind, that the version 17.3.6674.1021 does not  automatic changeover your old Groove.exe libraries.Also you have to install a registry Key, to sync from Groups and Team Sites. Again: Read the following Microsoft Document

    [Note 11/29/16]
    I received an Email form the Microsoft Product Group, regarding the different versions:

    • The last full Released Version has the version number 0809
    • Version 1021 is an Interim Update and Release

    If you tenant is set on first Release, then you are able to use version 1021, to sync data from team sites. But you have to install the version manually and set the registry key. Do it with the Microsoft Document.

    The next full version will come this year with a version number 11xx


    To sync data with all SharePoint Server OnPremise (all Versions), you still have to use the old “Groove.exe”. Here is the Microsoft Download site for the 32- and 64 Bit Versions of the different Groove.exe.
