Hey @MattyGr, I’d be interested in looking into that in a bit more depth! 
 
If it’s not too much trouble for you, could you include a screenshot (redacting personal info) for me showing me your current view in your next message if possible? 
 
Thanks in advance!

Finally it finished, and synced.  Would be better if there were more context to this, I thought it was broken.

I am experiencing the same issue. It has been showing the message "performing one-time update" all day long and it doesn't seem to move from there. Why is it doing this and how long does it suppose to take?

Same here

I have files clients waiting for the upload which is halted due to this " one time update" -thing. 

 

If we at least could get a timetable on this 😕
