Also, if a user performs a device update, KFM can automatically upload all new files to OneDrive.
Professionals can also use a background property to automatically move the contents of desktop folders, documents and pictures to OneDrive. It will also improve the OneDrive sync experience for macOS users, which will be based on Apple's new file provider platform.
