Photoshop performance very slow when file is saved to OneDrive folder

I've been experiencing very sluggish performance in Photoshop for long time now. It becomes virtually unusable when overlays such as the grid, selection marque or the eyedropper UI are visible, to the point of dropping to about 1 or 2 frames per second.

 

After spending several weeks troubleshooting the issue by trying various performance settings in Photoshop and even in the nVidia Control Panel, I discovered the issue only occurs when the file I'm working on is stored on OneDrive (which is where all my files are saved as they are part of larger shared projects). If I create a new (unsaved) document or the file is saved or opened from anywhere else on my computer Photoshop runs fast and smooth.

 

I hope this is something that the Photoshop devs can look into at some point. While we have a workaround for the problem, having to manually copy files back and forth is major workflow disruption and prone to user error. It's like doing software development without source control; people not always having the latest version of a file or accidentally replacing a file that someone else has updated.
