  2. OneDrive Personal Vault cannot be unlocked on Windows10.

    I recently enabled the Personal Vault function in OneDrive (Office365 + 1TB subscription).

    The vault functions correctly via browser and on my iPhone/iPad.

    However, it doesn't work on my Windows10. I get two warning windows saying:

    "Something went wrong with your Personal Vault.

    Your Personal Vault is locked. To access your Personal Vault, please unlock it again.

    [Unlock] [Close]"

    And:

    "We couldn't unlock your Personal Vault.

    Something went wrong. Please try again.

    Error Code: 0x80004005.

    [OK]"

    To save you time, yes I have all updates installed, rebooted my PC twice, logged out of OneDrive then logged back in.

    How to Unlock OneDrive Personal Vault in Windows 10


    OneDrive is a cloud-based storage service where you can view, browse, upload, and share the files you saved online to OneDrive.

    OneDrive runs on the trusted Microsoft cloud, which has many security measures in place to keep your files safe. But Microsoft understands that some people want more protection for their most important and sensitive files, which is why they are introducing Personal Vault.

    Personal Vault is a protected area in OneDrive where you can store your most important or sensitive files and photos without sacrificing the convenience of anywhere access.

    Personal Vault adds to the robust privacy and security that OneDrive currently offers, including file encryption at rest and in transit, suspicious activity monitoring, ransomware detection and recovery, mass file deletion notification and recovery, virus scanning on download for known threats, and version history for all file types.

    You will need to set up OneDrive Personal Vault separately on each device where you want to use it.

    Just enter a PIN, or use your fingerprint, face, or a code delivered by email or SMS1 to unlock and access your filesno need to remember multiple passwords. Additionally, Personal Vault can be unlocked with the Microsoft Authenticator app. Whichever way you choose, unlocking is quick, convenient, and helps secure your data.

    Personal Vault uses more than just two-step verification to help keep your files safe and private. On Windows 10 PCs, OneDrive syncs your Personal Vault files to a BitLocker-encrypted area of your local hard drive. And like all files in OneDrive, the contents of your Personal Vault are encrypted at-rest in the Microsoft cloud and in-transit to your device. For further protection on mobile devices, it is recommend that you enable encryption on your iOS or Android device. Together, these measures help keep your files protected even if your Windows 10 PC or mobile device is lost, stolen, or someone gains access to it.

    Personal Vault automatically locks after a period of inactivity (20 minutes on the web, 3 minutes on a mobile app) and then you need to unlock it to get at your files again. All your documents, photos, and videos in Personal Vault are easy to access from onedrive.com, your PC, or other capable devices.

    These new Personal Vault capabilities will be provided to people who use OneDrive on the web, with the OneDrive mobile app or on a Windows 10 PC. Personal Vault started rolling out in all regions worldwide on September 6, 2019 and is expected to be available to everyone in October. You will know it's available when you see the special Personal Vault folder in OneDrive.

    If you already have OneDrive, Personal Vault will appear as a feature update when it launches later this year in your region. And if you arent yet a OneDrive customer, you can download the app or go to www.onedrive.com to start using it on your PC or on the web. If you are using OneDrives free or standalone 100 GB plan, you can try Personal Vault with a limited number of files. Office 365 subscribers can store as many files as they want in Personal Vault, up to their storage limit.

    If you don't have an Office 365 Home or Personal subscription, you can only add up to three files in your Personal Vault. If you do have a subscription, you can add as many files as you want (up to your storage limit).
