  2. I faced many problems with synchronizing process to external SD micro memory card

    After I follow you instructions below ( by using the command %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset ) to solve the problem , I noticed that this problem solved for one time only , let me explain:
    I have business account with one drive using 2 lap tops:
    The office lap top (DELL) and at home , another lap top (Microsoft surface 4 pro. Equipped with external micro SD memory of 256 GB ) . I select the folder where to down load and synchronizing all my files is in the micro SD memory card (drive D)

  4. Tell me where to find cloud when my computer crashes and won't start up

    I am not dumb, but give me a way to find my cloud so I can get my saved data back onto another new computer.

  6. RAID synchronization problem on Windows phones

    I am facing a recurrent problem with synchronization of one of my folders in OneDrive. Even though the order of items listed in that folder is correct when I view those items in OneDrive online, or in the OneDrive folder on my C-drive, whenever I access this folder from my Windows phone, the order is helter-skelter. I have tried deleting and re-adding all the content in this folder twice. However each time, the same helter-skelter order reappears when it is accessed from my phone – while ironically, the order remains correct order online and on my computer C-drive. It seems…

  8. To prevent syncing to the wrong account, Add account mail/photo to the OneDrive sync

    After signing out from my personal OneDrive & signing in to my 1 Tera work account, I started syncing files to OneDrive.

    Anyway, the files were synced to my low-quota personal account.

    To prevent this from happening to anyone else, make the name / photo of the account the files being synced to available at the OneDrive sync app (the one at the taskbar next to the sound & WiFi buttons)

    As you see, the account is not identifiable from here.
    Please make it identifiable & save our time & data.

    Best regards

  10. OneDrive automatically added to startup when Windows 10 version 1511 was installed

    I do not choose to use OneDrive and removed it from my startup list after installing Windows 10. Now, after installing the W10 ver. 1511 update, I find that OneDrive is again automatically appearing and prompting me to log into my Microsoft account. When I right clicked on the OneDrive icon and chose settings, I found no way to disable it. I'm not happy.

  16. Use more specific language for OneDrive

    Microsoft uses "OneDrive" to refer to both storage in the cloud and storage on your local PC. For example if you choose to no longer sync a folder, the warning reads something like "This folder will remain on OneDrive but will be hidden from File Explorer. Files in that folder will be deleted from your PC".

    Well that is really confusing since OneDrive is a folder on my local PC and it's my storage in the cloud. Warning should read: "This folder and its contents will remain on the OneDrive cloud but will be will be deleted from your PC.…

  17. Subir archivos sin tener que moverlos a la carpeta OneDrive

    deberia de haber dentro de la interfaz de onedrive un botón algo así con un + para añadir ficheros a mi one drive, al hacer click despliegue las opciones: "sincronizar una carpeta entera", "subir archivo"

    Con esto se elimina la necesidad de que lo que yo quiera sincronizar tenga que estar en mi carpeta de OneDrive del PC.

  20. Consistent sync across windows computers without having to reinstall

    My secondary computer with the same windows OS as my primary computer, can never see or access new files that are uploaded by my primary computer or my cell phone without having to uninstall and reinstall OneDrive. It doesn't provide a refresh option even though it is considered a shared drive.
    The primary computer can see the files uploaded by the secondary computer in real time. But the secondary computer can never see the files uploaded from the phone or the primary computer. It has been a problem through multiple versions of Windows
