    Onedrive problems


    Onedrive is installed on my system but has stopped working as of today. It will not start at boot nor will the icon appear on the taskbar so that I may access the settings.

    Turn on or off will not work if the icon is not on the Taskbar.


    Tried to Reinstall OneDrive but it says that a newer version is already installed.!!

    If OneDrive is installed, then type "one drive" into the search box and click on the OneDrive desktop app.

    I had the same problem 10 days ago Onedrive tray icon has disappeared
    In my case the fix was to find C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive\18.091.0506.0003 and run OneDriveSetup.exe from this folder.
    I had 2 similarly numbered folders, and one of them gave me the "newer version" message, but the other one worked.

    @Nuccii

    This is a goofy problem that pops up on 1803 from time to time.

    Go to your appdata, this path:

    C:\Users\XXXXXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive\Update. The XXXXXX is your user name.

    Look for the .exe called OneDriveSetup. Click it to run it. It will say "Setting up first use" or something to that effect. It's not, it's just getting itself ready. Than your taskbar icon should be there and all working. Give it a try.

    You may need to set "Show hidden folders" to get to appdata......

    Sorry, @skcusime ... think we were posting at the same time.

    Thanks @f14tomcat.

    Your link did the trick and I checked the Settings to automatically start at boot (twice this setting has unchecked itself in 2 weeks).

    When I restart the system, It does not start up automatically. I must run OneDrive manually for the icon to reappear.

    You welcome. Glad that worked for you.
