  1. Onedrive Refusing Correct Password Everyday


    I have two desktops, a 2008 Windows 7 and a 2019 Windows 10. I logged into OneDrive on the older computer and set it up there, so that I can share between the two until the old one fails for good.


    The problem is this: Every morning after shutting down the Windows 7 desktop and sleeping the Windows 10, OneDrive makes me log in again on both computers. I enter my correct password. Absolutely--NO typos, NO caps lock error, etc., absolutely the correct password. OneDrive refuses the correct password. Same password for both desktops. When I finally get into OneDrive one, I'm onto it on the other.


    So I do the reset thing--they email me a seven digit number, I reset the password. When I do this, I first try the refused correct password. It says, NO, you've already used that password. So it did recognize the password, just thought it was old even though it should have been current.


    How can I stop this behavior? The failure is costing me at least fifteen minutes everyday.


    Possibly related info:


    The Windows 10 Credentials Manager shows one OneDrive Credential with a User Name that looks encrypted (it's actually my email address) and the password hidden (dots). It always, even before I fail to log into OneDrive, says "Modified Today".


    It also shows one MicrosoftAccountuser=[my email address]. For User name it lists my correct email address, and the password is hidden (dots).


    Coincident with the OneDrive password behavior, every time I log into this forum, Microsoft refuses my correct password, even one day old. Same routine, I reset, etc. This one, too, even before I fail and reset, always says "Modified today". I fully expect that when I first try to post this problem, the forum will refuse my yesterday's correct password and force me to reset it.


    So again and finally, how can I stop these behaviors?


    Thanks,

    fg

  2. 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.

  3. Correct password is ‘incorrect’

    Hello Amy,

    In line with your concern, I would suggest to try using all the passwords you've used in the past and check if it lets you proceed starting in Safe Mode. Also, to better assist you with your concern, I'd like to know the following:

    • Confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:
    1. Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    2. Click OK.
    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • What is the error message that you're getting when you've experienced the blue screen error?

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.

  4. Onedrive Refusing Correct Password Everyday

    Recovery of onedrive user id and password.

    This will be the same email address and password combination that you use for your Microsoft Account.

    Depending on whether your phone is on WP8.1 or Windows 10 Mobile, the exact steps might be slightly different.

    Go to Settings, and then go to Email and Accounts. Whatever is listed first as your Microsoft Account is the email address you want to use for your OneDrive (in most cases).

    If you can't remember the password for your Microsoft Account, from the web you can go the steps for "I forgot my password" on any Microsoft log in page. If you need help with this, ask below and someone can walk you through it.
