CloudBacko Destination : Recommend discontinue use of Microsoft 'OneDrive for Business' as a Destination

Date: 2022-12-02

CloudBacko recommends users and Admins temporarily discontinue use of Microsoft OneDrive for Business as a destination (Backup) until Microsoft resolves this bug (

Due to recently discovered Microsoft issue affecting upload of specific files with bytes-sized corresponding to our data Block file [ ~32MB and ~64MB ], CloudBacko backup jobs may result in excessive 'retry' until max period is exhausted, resulting job error, leading to incomplete Block(s) data transfer. While the issue might not always be hit given varying bytes-size differences in each CloudBacko block file [.bak], it is on the side of caution to avoid incomplete backups by using an alternate Destination until this is resolved.

This Microsoft OneDrive for Business bug affects all CloudBacko products versions of Pro , Home , Lite , Go.

Any error message to look for ?

What if the Destination is currently using OneDrive for Business ?
For Backups, we recommend you pause their Schedules, and create new Backup Sets to alternate destinations. When the Microsoft bug is fixed, you can resume your original Backup Sets.
