I have heard from Microsoft that they are soon to remove all hashes other than
quickXorHash from onedrive personal and business.
This means that the SHA1 hash will be removed from OneDrive personal.
I don't think that this will affect rclone overly - syncing to and from local will still work just fine with hashes.
The only case this could affect users is if someone is relying on having SHA1 hashes on onedrive personal.
This might be
- syncing from another backend which supports SHA1 to onedrive, eg B2,Box <-> onedrive
- storing the SHA1 hashes somewhere for comparison
- perhaps using the
hasherbackend with SHA1
I don't think this will affect many users so I'd like to switch the the default hash function to
quickXorHash for onedrive personal for the next rclone release (v1.62).
quickXorHash is already the hash function for onedrive business and sharepoint. In my testing all files on onedrive personal already have a
If we can get the change into rclone before Microsoft implement their change then it will be easier on rclone users.
Any comments much appreciated.
