o365-logoI’ve been working a lot more with the Office 365 cloud platform lately. Both personally and for business. I love it and I think it’s absolutely fantastic. I love having Exchange over a basic IMAP and having Skype for Business is also a plus as it allows me to directly contact vendors, colleagues, and clients effortlessly. OneDrive for Business is also the best – 1 TB of storage. I can now move my documents entirely to the cloud and I’ll have them wherever I’m at. However, there seems to be a limitation with what you can sync. There seems to be an interesting issue (one that I ran into with a customer as well as myself) where you cannot have a folder called “forms”. If you do, OneDrive will not sync.

There it is… the unsyncable. If you have that folder, your files will not sync. OneDrive will throw errors left and right. Get rid of the folder and everything syncs up.
