Hi Simon, are the files set to online-only when using Smart Sync?
 
How many files does it say are syncing? Do you see any blue syncing icons on the files? Do they instead have gray cloud icons?
 
Any details you can provide would be great!

Hi Jay 

Its set to online only and its 13 346 that are constanly sycronising, all the files that are syncing are in blue none in grey, it seems that every time we open any file it begins to sync continually ?

Does this behavior occur for all members on your team, or just yourself? Do you have more than one desktop device, and if so, does this happen on all of them?
 
If you mark some files as local, do they sync and download to your machine?

Could you try using selective sync to prevent some folders from syncing to your machine?
 
This might make the syncing faster for the remainder of the files.
 
Once they’ve downloaded, you can add those folders again so they start syncing too.
