The OneDrive development team has announced that the roll-out of differential sync is now complete. Large files can synchronize without difficulty because only the changed bits need to be transmitted to the server. This isn’t an excuse to start uploading MP4 files to OneDrive, but you can now do it more easily.

@Tony RedmondWhen you click on the OneDrive client cloud icon in the notification area, and you see the status of files that are uploading saying "Uploading xx mb of yy mb (zz mb) ", where zz mb is smaller than the actual file size of yy mb, is that an indication that differential sync is happening and it's only uploading zz mb of data?

 

For example "Uploading 50mb of 500mb (350mb)"

 

Thanks,
