Limit the sync app download speed to a fixed rate

This setting lets you configure the maximum speed at which the OneDrive sync app (OneDrive.exe) can download files. This rate is a fixed value in kilobytes per second, and applies only to syncing, not to downloading updates. The lower the rate, the slower files will download. The minimum rate that can be set is 1 KB/s and the maximum rate is 100000 KB/s. Any input lower than 50 KB/s will set the limit to 50 KB/s, even if the UI shows the inputted rate.
If you enable this setting, computers will use the maximum download rate that you specify, and users will not be able to change it.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, users can choose to limit the download rate in OneDrive sync app settings.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
