Files are lost on a OneDrive cloud

Using Freeplane locally works fine and I am very happy to work with it. Unfortunately, it does not work at all on a OneDrive for Business server. I guess it won’t work fine on any cloud system. Files can be lost or damaged.

It seems sharing options are not set properly. When I open a file in Freeplane, I still can rename it or modify it in explorer when it should have been exclusively locked by Freeplane!

As a result, the cloud has no way to know if Freeplane is currently using the file, and does weird things.

To fix this, I guess the file should be opened with different sharing options. I guess 0 (zero) would we fine because nor FILE_SHARE_READ nor FILE_SHARE_WRITE would work for a text file. More important, the file MUST stay opened as long as it is used (session management).
With this modification, the cloud will be able to detect when the file is saved and close, and update it properly.

Thank you - Rob

Submit a bug report to ... g_page.php . I shall work on it after 1.3.x is released so that in 1.4 you have the solution.
