    OneDrive - unable to make files online only.

    Problem: When I try and make a file online only on OneDrive I get an "unspecified error" message (see attachment).
    This test file was created in the root folder of OneDrive (../Documents/OneDrive/OneDrive sync test.txt) and so there's no over-long path and no problematic characters.

    I've tried diagnostic utilities but they don't come up with anything.

    I'd really like to make good use of the 10TB worth of storage I have on OneDrive backing up my hi-res FLAC collection, which is substantial, but currently if I uploaded these to OneDrive my laptop's 500GB SSD would get filled up within a very short time. My 32 bit desktop doesn't have this problem.

    Has anyone any ideas.
