    OneDrive won't start


    I am unable to manually start the OneDrive app on my PC that syncs with the cloud. The little 'circle of progress' shows for less then a second, then... nothing. Any ideas?

    TIA...

  2. Not able to log in to Windows 10

    The log in screen won't even come up to let me put my password in. The background picture is there and when I hit the mouse the screen blanks out.

    Original title: [Not able to log on to one drive]

  3. bad/corrupt files windows 10

    I disabled OneDrive from start up the other day and I just noticed that OneDrive won't open. The process starts to run but then disappears, no window opens for OneDrive. I tried reinstalling OneDrive but no dice, same thing happens when I try to open
    it. I ran the system file checker and it says there are file errors pertaining to adcjavas.inc but it cannot repair. How do I repair bad files in windows 10?

    What happens when you go to File Explorer and just click on OneDrive?

    Have you ever saved any files in OneDrive?

    What happens when you open OneDrive and drag and drop a file into OneDrive?

    The reason why I asked you all of that is because I use OneDrive as a regular file location, I am unaware that there is an app that relates to OneDrive.

    There is one other thing that I just thought of. How are you signed into your Windows 10 device, with a local account or a Microsoft account? You might not be able to access OneDrive storage if you are signed into your device using a local account.

  7. My OneDrive is syncing correctly, and neither the Taskbar icon, or the files in OneDrive have any indicators like say Dropbox does (green circle with checkmark). When OneDrive syncs it shows a blue circle icon on the OneDrive cloud icon on the Taskbar, but goes away when sync is complete. Are you sure you're not just thinking it's not working because there is no "sync OK" indicator? If you add/remove a file does it show the sync indicator, and then it goes away? If so then it's working correctly.

    There should be an indicator if you hover your cursor over the taskbar icon.

    If it isn't working there are logs in C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive\logs which may give a clue.
     
  9. Yes I get that pop-up when I hover, but I was talking about the static icon. It doesn't show anything like Dropbox or Windows Defender does. And you can tell if it's working by it being white. If it's not working the color changes to an off grey. A lot darker that what you see here.

    I've occasionally had this happen also, where I click the tile or shortcut and nothing happens. You could try two things.
    1) reset Onedrive. Win+R, type - %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset It may take a minute or two for icon to reappear. This will totally resync all your content so it may take a while.
    If the icon does not reappear after reset and 5 mins, then force it by Win+R, type - %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe then OK
    2) r-click system tray icon, then Settings, then Account tab. Click 'Unlink this PC' You'll be prompted to set up your account again with your MS sign-in as if you're a first time user.
    Good Luck

    Thanks mrgeek, and to all of you for your suggestions! The reset of OneDrive did the trick. This was the first time I've encountered this issue. I tried a few other things I picked up from internet searching, but the reset worked. Thanks again!

    Actually, I did mark it solved when I posted my last comment, but it didn't seem to 'take'. Now the button says "Mark Unsolved". I'll try marking it unsolved, then mark it solved again...

    [edit: That seems to have worked.]
