    I'm building an app that for it to work I need to sync user files among the devices, which uses the same Microsoft Account. I tried Roaming AppData but it takes a lot of time to sync between devices and sometimes it doesn't. So I cannot say it is perfectly consistent solution to rely on. Is there a way to manually sync RoamingFolder? Or should look for other options? For instance, can I use user's own OneDrive to store these files? Or a free online database service perhaps?

    Do you know if I can hide the folder/directory I created at the users OneDrive? I don't want those files to be accessible by the user if they go through OneDrive web interface or app. I just want to call that folder within my application.

    From the article:
    Here are the basic services provided by the SDK
    • ...
    • Read and modify folder properties
    • Read and modify file properties
    • Set permissions on files and folders
    • ...
    So, the simple answer would be yes. :)

    Hi, I don't know what type of an app you are developing, but Azure App Service can also be an option: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/app-service/. It supports offline access / sync, you also get servers side processing if you'll need it in the future. There are also alternatives to AppService, like: https://parse.com/.
