This is a problem of OneDrive in Windows 10. 

right now that I'm writing this it's version 19.202.1016.0006

 

I have Office 365 Business premium subscription but the problem happens to both business (OneDrive for business accounts) And personal Microsoft accounts (@outlook.com).

 

So for example I have a 2GB file on my OneDrive storage that I want to check the properties of.

I right-click and select properties. then OneDrive keeps me waiting because on the taskbar it shows that it's actually downloading the whole file, just to show me its properties. so OneDrive can't only get the metadata but it needs to acquire the whole file to show me its properties.

 

This needs to change because it's just waste of Internet bandwidth and is bad for productivity.
