    Cannot login to onedrive


    I cannot login to onedrive. I get error that I am syncing with different account - Please provide password for "".

    Please help.

    EDIT: Thanks for the help guys. I was able to fix my problem by doing this:

    Got same today after changing password. Onedrive folder wont sync, when entering new credentials was given same message.

    What helped me in the end was to reinstall onedrive:
    add or remove programs -> find onedrive -> uninstall
    start+r -> %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\ -> find onedrive setup there
    hope it helps someone

    Just upgraded to Anniversary version in hopes that it would fix it. It didn't.

    I can't unlink it either because there is no option to do so.

    Post a screenshot of error message. If you sign in to computer with your MS acct, that should be the acct tied to OneDrive. Have you tried signing in on the msn.com page at the top vs the Store App, if that's what you're using ? You'll see on that page that you're signed in with your one MS at the upper R corner and you should be able to open OneDrive from the tools tab at the top and see what's in their cloud.

    I'm using the integrated OneDrive app. On my Windows tablet I can login to it just fine, but not on my laptop.
