I sync my workspace to OneDrive and simply opening and closing a project or scene triggers a sync of hundreds of files - and that's just when I open the file. If I make any edits or a save it feels like there are exponentially more modified files.

Hi Devin

Thanks for your input. We are investigating the issue, since the files in the project are not changed by opening or closing a project.

Thanks

Its the not the projects - its the workspaces. I've moved to a workflow that keeps the workspaces local and the projects in cloud storage, but with this approach they aren't backed up.

This is a really important feature request still, formalising and ensuring stable working over file syncs (onedrive/dropbox/box) is very important for consultancy work especially when teams are spread over different countries.  As @DevinLavigne states for workspaces not just projects. Can someone from Esri give us an update on this @ThomasFuchs perhaps?
