I have migrated Dropbox folders and files to Office 365/Skydrive Pro.  I have moved the Dropbox files on employee A's "shared with everyone" folder.  When employee B visits the Skydrive Pro web portal and clicks on shared with me, we see the following message "This view cannot be displayed because it exceeds the list view threshold (5000 items) enforced by the administrator"

As far as I know, there is no work-around 5000 items is the list view threshold.

Ok, but what does the error mean?  When I visit employee A's Skydrive Shared with Everyone folder, there are only 55 folders.  Those folder have subfolders but where does the 5000 come from?  what is it referring to?

It's a limit in the view, not in the actual amount of files in the folder.

OK, but the view shows 30 line items at a time.  so in this case, there are 2 pages, 1-30 and 31-55.

what aspect of Skydrive Pro is reaching the 5000 limit?

I have reinstalled Skydrive on employee B's computer and am no longer getting the error.

Looks like the Skydrive install on the employee's computer was corrupt.  Reinstalling fixed the issue.
