    Win 10 Onedrive not syncing and constantly searching for changes


    I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Now Onedrive will not sync new files to the cloud. In addition the Cloud icon is constantly "looking for changes".

    :)

  2. Windows 10 - 8/6 cumulative update problems?

    Upgraded to WIn 10 with no problems until the 8/6 cumulative updates installed behind the scenes.

    Constantly being told I don't have permissions to folders when I am an administrator.

    OneDrive is useless - constantly drops my login, have to reinstall every time I go to the folder in explorer. Then it fails to sync changes made from other devices because of permission problems. I've unlinked and tried everything I've see elsewhere to
    no success.

    Thoughts? Thanks

    Hello,

    It could be that OneDrive is not yet finished syncing your files or is not yet fully set up. May we know if you have recently changed some settings in OneDrive?

    OneDrive constantly syncs your files from your PC to OneDrive, thus, can cause a slow down on your device. However, you may stop OneDrive from syncing your files. Here's how:

    • On the taskbar, select File Explorer.
    • Right-click OneDrive - Personal, and then select Choose OneDrive folders to sync.
    • Clear the Sync all files and folders in OneDrive check box, then select
      OK.
    • Restart your PC and see if there are improvements within your device.
