I reported in the middle of December that I seemed to have bottomed the problem with OneDrive and DOpus taking upon itself to randomly download files. I was being very premature. With a week the problem had started again.
The original post was:
# One Drive and Opus Downloading
but much of it is irrelevant in the light of what I have discovered
Three weeks ago, DOpus took it upon itself to download a whole folder full of PDF files from OneDrive and dump it on my PC. That was over 1.25 gigs of files.
In an attempt to try to make some sense of this, I re-installed windows and checked I was using what was then the latest version of OneDrive. I also stopped using Opus to deal with OneDrive and used Explorer.
The result was a faultless implementation of OneDrive with Icons changing as the files were taken on and off-line, just as it says on the box.
The only problem is that hate Explorer with a vengeance, so I needed to return to Opus.
It soon became obvious that opus was not keeping up with me as I took files on and off-line. When I took a file off-line the status icon changed to a green circle instead of blue cloud.
Assuming that the off-line request had not worked I took the file off-line again. Still no cloud icon. Very soon I had a folder full of PDFs and I really did not know which were on-line and which were off-line. Then Opus started its downloading tricks.
Then, by chance, I found something very interesting. I used Explorer to make sure that all my PDFs were off-line. I checked for a new version of OneDrive (Build: 19.012.0121.0011), which is dated March 2018 and installed it.
It did nothing to help with the problem of the Opus icons not changing, but at least it had a fix to prevent me from setting a file that was already off-line to off-line again. The option is now greyed out. Which also kind of proves that Opus is not up-to-date with the OneDrive status icons. OneDrive knows about the change - Opus does not.
Then I discovered that if I quit Opus altogether and re-started it from the desktop, the OneDrive status icon problem magically disappeared. They were all correct. This "fix" appears to work for me every time, but it is hardly convenient.
Any ideas how to fix this?
