Hi!
Please explain what you mean! Is your onedrive client stuck syncing?

The icon of onedrive is at this moment sync icon continuously, also when there is nothing to sync.
This icon should be a cloud icon when there is nothing to sync.
OneDrive is still working because when put something new in a folder it will also sync to the cloud.
Maybe OneDrive is stuck with some documents, but OneDrive is not showing any message of that.

I face the same problem. I have two Windows devices, synchronising ALL Files to Device1 and only certain Files to Device2. In total I use 4 Folders (with many many subfolders). The biggest Folder contains 975 GBs of data. The smallest 943 MB.

 

On the Device 1 (syncing all files) the "sync-smybol" always runs. And it says "changes are searched/looking for changes" (Änderungen werden gesucht). The main problem is, that new files or folder-renaming does not sync online anymore... :\ and even if it try 'watch online', it says; "coulnd create the link"
