I had some problems with my work laptop, so copied my knime workspace to OneDrive and worked from the cloud folder. It work nice while using the same machine, however, now that I had to switch to a different machine, I have issues. My files synchronized, I see the full folder structure, but knime AP 4.6.4 does not recognize them to be workflows, just show them as folders. Any tips on how to make them useable? I have no .knwf extractions.
I would move entire workspace from OneDrive to local disk and then try to point KNIME to this location.

Hi @ipazin ,
Yes, I see the advantage of using it from a local drive, however, my personal laptop crashed and now I use a temporal one only. I need to give it back any time, so I look for an option to be able to work device-independent. Plus I also would like to have a regular automatic backup of my development activities. The company I’m working for uses OneDrive, so this is basically the option I have due to the internal security policies. Any idea on how to make it work?
I see but ideas and recommendations on device-independent work are given in above topic and can’t add much more to it. One thing that comes to my mind is KNIME Hub. It allows you to have private space so maybe that is worth checking.
Regarding OneDrive not recognizing workspace structure properly you can try -clean parameter upon start but not sure that will help.
based on the pages you linked, the main recommendation seems to be to keep everything local. Unfortunately this is not an ideal solution for me. KNIME Hub could be a good option.
Also it seems that some admin settings were changed in our backup system, not all metadata got synchronized to the cloud. I think this could be a reason why my workflows are not recognized now.
Thanks for your comments
@Agi you might want to take a look at this article, specifically the sections about “KNIME and Clouds — OneDrive and DropBox” and “Backup is only for the faint of heart?”:
