    Work or school account problem with One Drive.


    Hi, I left University last year but my one drive account is still on my PC, how can i unlink my account when it doesn't exist?


    I keep getting notifications about it and the One Drive symbol is in file explorer with a red cross on it.

    Is there any way to get rid of these notifications?


    Very annoying.


    (PS I can't connect my btinternet email to outlook on my phone but it works fine on PC)

    :)

  3. Problem with school or work account

    Hi there!

    I recently switched schools which means my old school account has been deactivated and can no longer be accessed. I can't sign in to this account anymore. Unfortunately, I have forgotten to sign out of this account on my laptop, which means I now get a daily
    reminder that there's a "problem with school or work account". The notification is driving me a bit nuts.

    However, when I tried to remove the account via Settings > Accounts > Email & App accounts, I am required to sign in to the account before I can remove it. Is there perhaps another way to remove the account that doesn't require me to sign in? Or am I just
    going to have to live with the daily reminder?

    I hope this is enough information about the problem and I hope someone might have a solution. I hope to hear from you soon!

    All the best,

    Dimphy

    Can't add a school account?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I suggest you to try the below given methods and check if it works:

    Method 1:

    This issue may arise due to some file corruption, I suggest you to try running DISM tool and check if it works. To do so, refer the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Method 2:

    I suggest you to try to create a new user account and check if you still face this issue in new user account. To create it perform the steps mentioned below.

    • Press Windows key + X key and select
      Control Panel.
    • Click on User accounts and Family Safety.
    • Click on User Account and then click on Manage Accounts.
    • Now click on Add a new user and follow the instructions.
    • Sign out from the current User account and log-in using new User account and check if issue persist.
    Hope this information helps. Please post back with the results, we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
