OneDrive is messing with metadata
« on: October 23, 2020, 04:20:57 pm »

Just realized I have a big problem with OneDrive.  I don't think I can work around, so I'm looking for an alternative.

I've used OneDrive for years.  But recently I started editing my IPTC keywords and for a while, I thought I was losing my marbles - because the next time I looked, those changes were gone.

It took me a while to figure what was happening, but now I can see it right in OneDrive's status/history display. If I change a keyword tag, OneDrive picks up the change and syncs the file to the cloud. Then, maybe a minute later, it DOWNLOADS the file from OneDrive to my PC, with the original keywords restored.   I think OneDrive is using the metadata internally, for its own purposes, and getting confused.   But this is a deal breaker.

Has anyone else run up against this?
