DataSync 4 Onedrive doesnt sync

Postby caverna » Sat Jan 21, 2017 1:00 am

Hello guys !

I recently put my Asustor to work and I installed DataSync for OneDrive. So far, so good!

But ... in fact .. the application never synced a file at all. The DataSync status remains in "Indexing remote files" while consuming about 25% CPU.

It's been 24 hours since initial setup and nothing has changed. No file synced so far.

Can someone help?

Thank you!

This is one of Asustor's home grown apps, and as such I suggest you create a ticket at and get some help from there. We don't see many official Asustor employees here in the forums. This is more users helping users. (Even if I am a mod, I'm still just a user.)

I know they had huge issues with their Web Storage from Asus a while back, and basically they stopped development on the app completely. Some of us had high hopes for it....

Hello Caverna,

I have been using the Datasync for Onedrive for several months now. It has been running quite fine here, but the indexing remote files does take a considerable amount of time (I have about 250 GB of storage in Onedrive) and probably depends on the download you have (I have a > 100Mb connection). When I start the Datasync the indexing of the remote files will take over an hour (estimate).

Let it run for some time, it will create a database consisting of every file in Onedrive and it's characteristics, this takes time.

Best regards,
Kapitein Haak.
