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.

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

"Repair" added to OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business, 15.0.4605.1000, Version With the release of the April Product update, build 4605, the OneDrive for Business “Repair” option is now available. Repair will provide the user an option to fix a certain set of client side sync issues thereby increasing user confidence and, enhancing the usability of the OneDrive sync client. This is a first big step in enabling impacted users to get to a good sync state
Repair option in Onedrive for Business, systray context menu The Repair option is available as part of the systray context menu. If you find you are currently in a permanent sync error state, please use Repair.

Things to keep in mind:

1. Repair will stop sync on all your libraries and then re-sync them. How long this takes depends on the number of files and folders you’re syncing.

2. All your files will be archived by default, hence there is a pre-requisite on required disk space.

3. There can be a delay after Repair is complete, for files to appear in your synced folders. This time will vary (take longer), depending on the number of document libraries you have synced.

4. Don’t time a machine-restart while Repair is in progress, as the program currently don’t have support for auto-restart of Repair.

5. Document libraries deleted on the server, will continue to be in error state post Repair.
