LabVIEW building application crashes Microsoft OneDrive

Has anyone else experienced Microsoft OneDrive intermittently crashing when building a LabVIEW application and know of a fix?

 

My LabVIEW projects are in a subdirectory of a folder that is synchronised by OneDrive. I have discovered that, quite regularly, Microsoft OneDrive will crash midway through LabVIEW building an application (the default build destination directory is also a subfolder of the synchronised folder).

 

Currently my solution is to have a permanently running script that immediately starts Microsoft OneDrive when it detects it's closed, but this is just a bandaid rather than a fix of the underlying issue.

The solution is to build your executable in a folder NOT synchronized by OneDrive. Copy the executable to OneDrive folder when the build was successful (using a PostBuild action)…

Best regards,

Ok, so it's not just me experiencing this problem, and it sounds like there isn't a known solution of the type I was hoping for (that is, a permanent fix for the underlying issue so that I don't have to do anything to prevent it occurring).

 

I'll give that idea a vote: Indeed, this crash always went unnoticed, particularly as the OneDrive icon remains in the system tray until the mouse hovers over it, and it wasn't until I started running the aforementioned script that I finally realised it was associated with LabVIEW building an application.
