  1. ACCOUNT SIGN-IN FOR ONEDRIVE


    When I created my One Drive setup, I used my regular and only MS Account sign-in/password, which seems to work for all functions in Win 10. However I recently created a Hotmail account through Outlook. It features my Hotmail address and separate password. If I have recently logged into it, the sign-in defaults to that account. Earlier today, I went to "view my One Drive folder online" and no files were there. I then discovered that I was signed in with my Hotmail account. Thus, I signed out and signed back in with my regular MS Account, and One Drive displayed my files as expected. Question: is this Hotmail/Outlook account acting as a regular MS account when I am signed in to it? Do I need to sign out of it everytime that I use it, so the default sign-in is with my MS account? Is there a method to keeping these two accounts separated?

    :)

    Signing in - Sorry, there is a problem with onedrive servers

    Hi Sahil,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.

    • When you say, ‘added another one on my laptop’, are you to trying to setup a new Microsoft account on the device or are you trying to link it to OneDrive?

    If you’re facing issues with setting up a new Microsoft account on the device, I suggest you to
    Create a new local administrator accountand
    then convert it to a Microsoft account. Refer Sign in with Windows
    10 section in the article How to sign in to
    your Microsoft account
    for the same.

    If you’re facing issues with linking an account to OneDrive, I suggest you to check the
    versioning settings of your OneDrive library. Follow the suggestions by
    ReneYu MSFT on the thread Sorry, there is a problem
    with the OneDrive servers
    , dated 29 April 2016, for the same.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
