This tutorial details how to enable batch upload for OneDrive in Windows 10. As I’ve emphasized in a number of my recent articles covering Windows 10, one of the most powerful features of Microsoft’s latest Operating System is its deeply entrenched integration with OneDrive. It ensures that you have access to all of your important files and data, anywhere and everywhere. And the fact that all of this syncing is completely automated sweetens the deal even more.

However, all this continuous synchronization can cause the OneDrive upload of your files to slow down to a crawl. And that’s certainly not a good thing, right?

But it doesn’t have to be like that. You can easily configure OneDrive to upload the files in batches rather than all at a time, thus improving the overall upload speeds. Sounds useful right? Let’s see how you can enable batch upload for OneDrive in Windows 10.
