        No problem with 2004.

        No problem with my Microsoft Lumia 950 Windows phone running Windows 10 Mobile Version 1709 OS Build 10.0.15254.603.

        No problem on my Lenovo Legion Y540-IRH with Windows 10 Pro version 2004. Not sure why I avoided all the problems others had, as I’m probably not as computer savvy as most of the other people who follow this Site.

        Did a new version of OneDrive come out? If its updated through the Microsoft Store process, then it could update anytime right?

        Over the weekend I did something I’ve been putting off for quite some time; I used the NAMEXIF utility to rename a few hundred photos in my local OneDrive folder to YYYY-MM-DD-hhmmss.  I had previously sorted them into folders of YYYY\MM, and had already renamed a few hundred, but the older photos were overdue.

        After the renaming, it took OneDrive quite a quite a while to sync with the cloud (my upload speed is 10Mbps) but I had no connection issues.  I also have my NAS setup with the same OneDrive account, so that I have two local copies that take care of themselves in the background.

        Syncing on the way up from my desktop, while slow, was without issue.  Syncing down to my NAS was much quicker (200Mbps) and was also without issue.  Both are running 2004 (OS Build 19041.329).
