  1. Error adding account to OneDrive


    I had my business OneDrive account configured on a computer and then one day, the login timed out and it removed my account info instead of prompting me to login again. The account has two-factor authentication enabled.


    When I try and add the account again, I enter my work email address, then it proceeds to the window where it displays the local location where a copy of the OneDrive files will be stored.


    When I click NEXT, I get the following error message.


    SORRY, ONEDRIVE CAN'T ADD YOUR FOLDER RIGHT NOW. Please contact support.


    I contacted support at my company, but they are unable to determine the cause of the problem.


    I have OneDrive installed and working on two other computers with this same account with no problem.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del
