You’ve just hooked your PC up to OneDrive, and perhaps you’re trying to download a large folder (or everything) off it. Halfway through, you get an error: “OneDrive can’t transfer files right now”.
This is actually caused by your PC hitting a local transfer limit (not server sided) of about 500GB. Generally, you can wait a day and it’ll eventually start syncing again. Chances are though, you’d like to fix it immediately. Here’s how:
The fix is relatively simple.
- Open the Run command (Win+R) and type the following in (or navigate to it in Windows Explorer:
- Open ClientPolicy.ini
- Find the MaxClientMBTransferredPerDay variable and change its value from 537600 (525GB) to something higher, like 5376000 (5250GB)
- Restart OneDrive
Awesome! Solved my problem. Thank you!!
Great article, first hit on the issue on DuckDuckGo for the error message. Thank you for putting this up.
Perfect! Thank you.
Solved the problem I was sweating since 2 days … Thanks!
Thanks! I was wondering why my gigabit internet had caused 1TB OneDrive to stop synchronising on my new Windows 11 build… and this fixed it.
