OneDrive sync speed incredibly slow

I have been trying to use OneDrive to sync my two laptop computers.  I am only syncing 5 GB of documents, I stopped trying to sync pictures because they never synced.  The files take days to sync!  Why does it take so long for OneDrive to sync?

On one of the settings tabs in the onedrive app on the computer, you can change the sync speed. Make sure they are set to the highest.

OneDrive Settings then options does not give me an option to change the sync speed.  I am using Office 365 personal.

Try installing this latest version on both computers and see if it corrects it and/or gives you the option to change sync speed.

Try this on both computers:
Press the Windows key + R
Enter this text into the Run window and press Enter:

%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset

That will reset OneDrive
After a couple of minutes, the OneDrive cloud icon should show in the system tray.

If it doesn’t start, open Start, find OneDrive and start it
