Microsoft launched their popular OneDrive Sync client back in 2017, which was a 32-bit client, however, they did not phase it out for another 3 years, and now they are working on a 64-bit version. Today on a blog post, Microsoft finally announced the release of a 64-bit client. However, this is still under preview.
OneDrive Sync – now 64-bit, but not stable, yet.
Although they announced the new client, the client is still a public preview not a stable variant. Microsoft also mentions that you have to download the client from their website, since this is still a preview.
As for the requirements, you need to have a 64-bit OS and a x64 processor, which is common nowadays. However, this removes the ARM-based computers, such as Surface Pro X. But rest assured users, Microsoft is working on that too. This is confirmed by the VP of OneDrive and SharePoint, Omar Shahine.
To get the preview version, head here to start downloading automatically. Once available commercially, the official version will replace the preview variant automaticall, says Microsoft.
