Facebook's Win 10 app just insisted I log in again, been a couple of days since last use, and then refused with a "App no longer available, use Facebook.com in browser" message. Another nail in the UWP coffin
Tried OneDrive Personal Vault & didn't go well, curious how others found it.
Enabled OneDrive Personal vault and moved some data (which was already on OneDrive in 'normal folders') into it. Looked ok on-line, but my Laptop got all sorts of sync errors and rebooting randomly either:
1) Allowed no access to Personal Vault at all (in explorer or app) or did not offer ability to unlock. The red "Unlock your vault" panel was in the OneDrive flyout menu but did not respond when you clicked on it.
2) If could unlock PV OneDrive still showed "unlock PV to sync" errors, when it was already unlocked
3) Accessing local PV folders locked up File Explorer until the machine was rebooted, go to 1) or 2) and repeat
The other problem is it seems PV access is totally dependent on cloud connection to unlock even when the Vault is on your local machine. I would have those items in a ""Always keep on this device" folder for off-line access. The sort of things I would consider putting in it are those I need to be able to access (travel, medical documents etc) quickly, if need them at all.
In the end I moved all the data back out again and abandoned it.
As the anniversary approaches, who's considering not renewing, why?
I'm still undecided, not so much because of the content but more my ability to consume it. The premium articles are fine but I don't have time to see many, lately none, of the daily podcasts.
If I do 'pull the pin' at least one thing will be resolved: the split premium/not comments on articles. It's something I have never liked.
Interested in others views.
With the death of my Windows Phone the choice was iOS or Android for a new daily driver. For a number of reasons Android won, but no wonder they have fragmentation problems.
Brand new Galaxy S7 Edge, running 6.0.1, software update: "the latest updates have already been installed".
If a premium device doesn't get them out of the box who does?
Meanwhile my half broken old 1520 (intact but intermittent touch response) is bang up to date
Anyone else had this, Groove has an option for download content but isn't seeing the music folder on S7 Edge SD card? Have all the music in OneDrive and can stream fine, how do you get it on the device for off-line use?
That is all, a small change but a good one!
