OneDrive users around the world have been upset to discover that with its latest update, Microsoft's cloud file syncing and storage system no longer works with anything other than disks formatted with the NTFS file system. Both older file systems, such as FAT32 and exFAT, and newer ones, such as ReFS, will now provoke an error message when OneDrive starts up.

While it's understandable that FAT-based filesystems are left behind - FAT needs to die a quick but horrible death - it seems weird that Microsoft's new ReFS isn't supported.

What? You don't need Azure access if you're using Office 365 unless you're using the online Exchange and OneDrive (really SharePoint) features. Otherwise, it's fine. I use my Office 365 subscriptions just fine regardless of Azure status.

Cloud much?
