OneDrive Sync Problem – Ridiculously Long Sync Times

Note: this post assumes that there is nothing actually wrong with your OneDrive Sync (that’s a topic of another one of our posts, see OneDrive Not Syncing On Surface), instead it talks about the actual behavior of OneDrive and its effect on your network.

I recently discovered an interesting problem with OneDrive on our Surfaces: if you reload your Surface and you have a sizable amount of files on your OneDrive, the OneDrive sync will take hours – even days – to sync up your data between the cloud and your device.

As an added bonus, you can install it on top of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and it includes a (hopefully fully working) rollback mechanism this time. The earlier version required a wipe and re-install to go back to a previous version of Windows. Continue reading

Windows 10 Announcement

Windows 10 Announcement

Earlier today, Terry Myerson from Microsoft announced several new technologies during a webcast from the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington.

There was a lot of interesting and exciting things outlined in the webcast, such as Windows 10, HoloLens, and Surface Hub which s lot of other tech sites are talking about.

However, being that this is Love My Surface, I’m going to focus on how these new technologies will affect the Surface line of tablets. As such, most (almost all, actually) of this post will be talking about Windows 10 and it’s associated features. Continue reading
