Microsoft is trying to attract more people to the new version of Windows. As Thurott reports, Microsoft and he warned that the OneDrive computer program will stop syncing with your computer Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 on March 1, 2022. The program will not receive any updates from January 1 onwards. You can still use the internet to transfer files manually, but this is a problem if you get cloud files from an old PC.
Business customers will no longer have many refunds. Microsoft binds OneDrive company support to Windows for Windows on the appropriate machines. Windows 7 and 8.1 users will have until January 10, 2023 (end of additional support for both platforms), when Windows 8 users have no access.
The company was not ashamed of his decision. This will help “look at things” on new Windows platforms and technologies, according to OneDrive developers. In other words, Microsoft really wants you to upgrade to Windows 10 or Windows 11.
This is not an unexpected move. Microsoft has had it for a long time problem attracting other customers upgrades to new versions of Windows, to the extent that companies and governments would rather pay for special service contracts than upgrade. This violates Microsoft’s policy, yes, and poses a security risk – WannaCry took the opportunity about organizations that roll out old Windows. The new OneDrive system may force other users to install new versions of Windows even if they are happy with older machines.
