TreeSize is able to scan OneDrive content only if it is synchronized to the local PC. It would be good if a OneDrive account could be scanned directly / online.
Although not officially supported, scanning OneDrive company storage with Treesize is already working, as they are basically SharePoint sites.
In case you use MFA for Office 365, Microsoft made this a bit complicated: manuals.jam-software.de/treesize/EN/azure-ad-configuration.html
Support for private OneDrive is now scheduled for V9.2
I have almost 1 TB of data stored in my OneDrive, only some of which is synchronised with my local machine (due to a lack of space). I'd like TreeSize to be able to connect directly to my OneDrive, so that I can analyse where the space is being used, in the same way that I do with TreeSize locally. Thanks.
It should not matter for TreeSize whether or not certain files are synchronized locally, the "Size" column / value should still provide correct numbers, while the "Allocated" column / values shows how much disk space is actually used locally, which may be smaller numbers than "Size".
Thanks for the response, but I think we must be taking about different things. Unless TreeSize can connect directly to the OneDrive server, how can it possibly know about the data that isn't synchronised locally? If I open TreeSize on the root of my local OneDrive folder, TreeSize correctly analyses the 20 GB of data that is set to synchronise locally. However, TreeSize shows the total file size as 20 GB, but there is in fact almost 1 TB of data in my OneDrive storage, it's just that almost all of it is cloud only. It's the 1 TB of files that I want to analyse, not just the 20 GB that is synchronised locally; does that make sense?
I personally also have most of my data in the cloud, but my local OneDrive shows the full directory structure, just >90% of the files are not downloaded. TreeSize shows the entire folder structure correctly and also the Size values are correct.
But I understand now, It seems that you have synchronized only some folders of your OneDrive.
Exactly! :) Am I correct in thinking that, today, TreeSize isn't capable of analysing the entire 1 TB given my OneDrive configuration (without synchronising all of the folders, which I don't want to do)? Thanks.
When I have scanned OneDrive folder in TreeSize 9.02, you can go to the 'View' section of the ribbon, and choose 'Size' instead of 'Allocated Space', which will adjust the Charts, Age of Files, and % of Parent accordingly.
For Top Files, you can adjust in Tools > Options the analysis to be by 'Size' instead of 'Alllocated Space'.
Once you are using all those options, you can see OneDrive folders from 'both sides' -- my overall storage in the cloud; and space actually used on my local disk.
Thanks Nathaniel, but what we're talking about here is analysing the files and folders that are *not* synchronised with the local machine (i.e. that are only on the OneDrive servers).
Apologies for the misunderstanding!
I was confused between 'synchronising' and 'Files on Demand' :-)
I now recognise you are looking for TreeSize to do a cloud-based scan of OneDrive to include folders that are configured *not* to be visible/available on your PC.
Auch wenn es auf onedrive möglich ist, hardlinks zu unterstützen bzw. anzulegen?
Even if it is possible on onedrive to support or create hardlinks?
Jumping back to the original feature request -- I am also in need of the ability to scan/analyse OneDrive *without* downloading all the files locally.
i.e. An online scan, like with SharePoint.
Or a _limited_ local scan that *does not* trigger OneDrive 'Files on Demand' downloads, and would only be able to see the limited attributes of the 'online' files.
I'd be happy to test or discuss further 👍🏼
> I am also in need of the ability to scan/analyse OneDrive *without* downloading all the files locally.
That should already work unless you use features that work on the file content (like duplicate file search). But you need to have the local synchronization activated.
YES! Please add OneDrive support!
In Windows Explorer, for folders and files stored on OneDrive (for Business), users can select to Free up space by removing the locally cached copy, or to mark it to always keep a cached copy on the local device.
When using TreeSize to identify large folders and files to free up diskspace, I regularly find myself switching to Windows Explorer to free up space by removing locally cached files.
Therefore, for folders and files stored on OneDrive, I would like to have the options "Free up space" and "Always keep on this device" that I also have in a regular Windows Explorer when right clicking the file(s) or folder(s).
Having the Sync Status column available directly in Treesize would make your tool even more versatile.
Please add support for OneDrive
There is also an issue with regards the space calculated by Treesize on the drive. My HDD is only 0.5 TB but Treesize reports my files as being 0.8 TB (which includes files on OneDrive but which aren't actually on the local HDD). I.e. it doesn't accurately report HDD space when including OneDrive files
Hi Ivar. These context menu items are available here. Would you mind contacting support so that we can get more information on this issue?
I am talking about O365
What does Win10 have to do with OneDrive?
You can already scan your Windows 10 OneDrive folder as well as SharePoint Online servers. Can you be a bit more specific?
Please note: If TreeSize is started as administrator, the OneDrive folder of the user will not be available, as OneDrive runs in the user context. Workaround: Do not start TreeSize as admin.
