    How to make my PC settings back up to OneDrive again?


    Hi,

    I'm having an issue getting my PC to back up to OneDrive. When I go to the website and go to "Device backups", it just says "You don’t have any devices that are backing up settings to OneDrive.".

    Here's what I did when I installed Windows 10, as I think something I did might have broken the syncing: -

    1. I did an upgrade to 10, then a totally clean install.

    2. I set OneDrive up and chose a couple of folders to sync.

    3. I went to the OneDrive website and checked the Device backups section and there were 3 or 4 backups there. My current computer was listed there, but the date of the backup was fairly old. I decided to delete all of them so I could start over. When deleting them I got a message that included the words "We'll also turn off setting backups for this device", but I thought that wouldn't be a problem as I could just turn it back on again. I went ahead and deleted all of the backups.

    4. I went into the sync settings in Windows 10 and everything was already turned on, so I assumed that some time in the near future a backup would appear on OneDrive, but it didn't.

    Here's the things I've tried in order to try and fix this: -

    1. Turning sync on and off.

    2. Unlinking my computer from OneDrive and then linking it again.

    3. Running the Microsoft Accounts troubleshooter. This popped up a message that said "The following settings have sync turned off: Installed apps", but the troubleshooter didn't fix that and I see nowhere I can turn that back on - if that's even related to this problem.

    4. Logging in with my account as a local account, then switching back to using a Microsoft account again. I saw a couple of other people say that this fixed the issue for them, but it didn't for me.

    I'm guessing that when I deleted the device backup and it said "we'll also turn off setting backups for this device" it flipped a switch somewhere to "off", but how on earth do I flip it back to "on" again?

    Many thanks for any help!

    :)

    How do I backup my lumia 830 with micro SD card

    Can't backup phone to SD card. You can backup contacts and SMS to SD with an app.

    When you use settings, backup: You save phone settings SMS, app list and some app data to your OneDrive.

    Music and data are not backed up, do this yourself to the PC. As you take photos they can be backed up to your OneDrive. Set your phone to backup pics to OneDrive when you start using the phone.

    A phone reset will restore the OS

  3. Point "This PC>Documents" to local file (NOT OneDrive)

    When I set up my new Windows 10 machine OneDrive was automatically set up for me. I went along, but have quickly realised I don't want to use it. Now I find that several of the links under "My PC" point to OneDrive folders that I deleted.

    I do not want to restore, restart or reconfigure my OneDrive

    I want to make all entries under "My PC" link to the folders in my local library (e.g. username/documents or username/images).

    How can I do this?
