If you have problems with syncing your files with OneDrive after updating your system to the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview build, you might find a solution here. Solving this problem is easy, and it requires you to take just a few steps in order to solve it.
Microsoft presented a lot of changes in their latest build, and most of them were unnoticed by an average PC user. But one bigger change definitely caught some attention. OneDrive no longer uses the same smart file syncing system from Windows 8/8.1, which is good for many users because it caused a lot of confusion in the past. And now it looks like Microsoft finally decided to fix things up, after so many complaints. Changing the method of sync may cause your sync process to crash, so here’s what you should do to make things right:
- Stop the skydrive.exe process
- Move all your files from OneDrive to an another location, probably another drive, or even another PC, just in case they aren’t synced
- Delete local OneDrive folder. This folder is probably located in your user files, for example C:\Users\Michael, where “Michael” is your username
- Then start skydrive.exe again
After performing this solution, you’ll see a window that wasn’t shown before, where you can choose which files and folders you want to sync with OneDrive. As you can see, you can sync all of your files and folders from OneDrive, or you can choose separately. When you complete all the steps and finish the process, you’ll be notified that Windows has created a new OneDrive folder and it will automatically sync your files, based on settings you chose before.
Besides all of that, you should keep in mind that this is still a pre-release software, so you shouldn’t be surprised if errors like this are present. But, if you still want to use it, besides all the bugs, we’re here to support you. So if this solution didn’t help you with your OneDrive sync issue, leave your comments below, and we’ll surely find a real solution.
