    windows 10 pro

    one drive icon lost from file explorer

    I have upgraded from windows 8.1 pro to windows 10 pro. After the upgrade the one drive logo that use to be displayed using file explorer is no longer visually available. It is not shown in the apps list or the task bar.
    I have upgraded a total of 3 identical systems. My main computer does not show one drive the other two do show one drive in file explorer. I could use some help.

    Windows 10 PRO 64Bit

    This does not happen often, but sometimes for some reason Windows 10 loses my drive D: which happens to be a old SSD drive. I checked the bios, checked the cable connections and I pulled it out and tested in another machine - no problems with the SSD or the cables or the bios. Start the system up again and Windows finds drive D: just fine. If it happens again I will replace the Sata cable and hope that does the trick, if not that SSD is going into the garbage.

    I don't think I helped you but misery loves company.
