Connect to OneDrive without setting up OneDrive

Side effect

  • some characters are displayed incorrectly:
    • ^0 = & (Country ^0 Folk.m3u)
    • ^1 = % (e.g. Vol. 1 100^1 Acid Jazz^J Vol. 1)
    • ^J = , (e.g. 100^1 Acid Jazz^J Vol. 1)
  • you can try to correct them, but you'll see they re-appear in the same way

Suspend / Resume OneDrive

OneDrive can be very expensive on bandwidth, so it's good to suspend it when you'll watch movies online.

Using the PsSuspend PsTool

Download & unpack the !PsTools.

Then simply issue pssuspend <process name> and the process is suspended. For OneDrive, the process name is onedrive (sometimes, life can be simple).

<span style='font-size: 1em;'>C:\Users>e:\tools\pstools\pssuspend onedrive
</span>
PsSuspend v1.07 - Process Suspender

Process onedrive suspended.

Resuming is done by simply adding the -r switch:

C:\Users>e:\tools\pstools\pssuspend -r onedrive

PsSuspend v1.07 - Process Suspender
Copyright (C) 2001-2016 Mark Russinovich

Process onedrive resumed.

Toggle command to suspend/resume OneDrive

C:\tools\PsTools\PsList -d onedrive|find/i "suspend" && C:\tools\PsTools\PsSuspend -r onedrive || C:\tools\PsTools\PsSuspend onedrive

Using the /shutdown switch of the OneDrive executable

C:\Users>%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive\OneDrive.exe /shutdown

And you launch your OneDrive sync again by simply calling the OneDrive executable without switches:

C:\Users>%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive\OneDrive.exe
