If you read the Knowledge base article, you'll hopefully understand.

For iOS Scriv to use OneDrive, MS must get other developers access to the API, the code that controls OneDrive, so the Scriv app can control the OneDrive server. And MS are not that keen on the idea.

jacquot wrote:In case this knowledge is useful to anybody, I've added Dropbox to my PC's, moved my Scrivener folders into Dropbox, and configured it so that they're syncing. OneDrive is still syncing its own stuff, but there's obviously been a turf war between them, and at the moment, the Dropbox folders have the little green ticks and OneDrive doesn't have any, even after a reboot, which, of course, it did before I installed Dropbox. The Dropbox sync works fine, and I can access my stories from my iPad. That's all good, but I'm not certain that I'll keep this setup, though. Missing ticks are obvious, but there may be other more subtle failures as the result of the two programs failing to play nicely.

rdale wrote:The missing tick-marks are a result of Windows only allowing 15 icon overlays to be displayed by the OS. Once you install a new app with overlays (there are several provided by Dropbox and most other sync programs), its icons get shunted to the front of the queue. I'm not even sure if an un-install of Dropbox would remove the overlays from the registry.
But that's just cosmetic. I'd pay closer attention to the system tray icon anyway; the overlays don't always show activity for a folder if only it's contents are being uploaded/updated.
