    OneDrive Personal High CPU Usage, Not Syncing

    Hi everyone!

    I have an issue that keeps popping up and I can't seem to figure out. Every so often, usually after I used the computer for an hour or so, OneDrive will start really taxing the CPU (25-35%), but also it won't be syncing anything. Right-clicking the notification icon and exiting doesn't actually exit the process; I have to go to Task Manager and force it to stop.

    When relaunching OneDrive it's fine for a while, but then starts the same behavior again. Something is getting stuck, but I don't know how to check what's causing it.

    Any thoughts on what might be causing that and what I might do to fix it? Running Windows 10 Pro on a Surface Pro 3.

    Did a full format of the PC last night and got everything up and running again.

    And it happened again. Any thoughts at all? Is there a log somewhere I can check to see what might be causing OneDrive to get hung up?
