Microsoft OneDrive app will turn into a pumpkin on Windows 7 and Windows 8 starting March 1, 2022

Microsoft is trying to push more people to upgrade to new versions of Windows. The company warned that

OneDrive desktop app will stop workingsynchronize with personal computers running Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 from March 1, 2022. The app itself will no longer receive updates on January 1st.

Of course, users will be able to continue to use the web interface to access files, but this, of course, will not add comfort to anyone.

Business clients are “lucky” a littlemore, and even then not to everyone. Microsoft is tying OneDrive enterprise support to the Windows cycle for eligible machines. Windows 7 and 8.1 desktop users will have until January 10, 2023 (the end of extended support for both platforms), and Windows 8 users will be on par with regular users.

Microsoft isn't particularly shy when describing the reasonssuch a step. According to OneDrive developers, this will help “focus resources” on newer Windows platforms and technologies. In other words, if you need seamless file syncing via OneDrive, upgrading your systems is inevitable.
