Microsoft releases a genuine version of OneDrive for Mac with Apple M1 SoCs.
OneDrive was only available on Apple M1 Macs via Rosetta 2, an Intel macOS app emulator. Unnecessary emulation of the day. Microsoft released a native version of OneDrive for Mac with Apple M1 SoCs.
The original application runs faster and more efficiently than the emulated version. “OneDrive will now take full advantage of the performance benefits of the Apple M1,” Microsoft said.
Additionally, Microsoft introduced a new feature in the public preview of OneDrive for macOS: Backup folderalso known as folder move.
This feature allows you to back up your macOS Desktop and Documents folders in an instant. The Desktop and Documents folder are synchronized automatically. Documents are available on any other device with OneDrive installed.
macOS device administrators can enable automatic syncing via Settings. For example, during the formation of a new workplace, after which the employee always and everywhere works with the same folders of Desktop and Documents.
Folder backup availability is limited. Only 10 percent of all Microsoft Insiders are currently eligible. The feature will be rolling out to all Insiders in the coming weeks.
