    Sync settings


    Hello Guys,

    Could anyone tell me how often windows 10 syncs setting to OneDrive, to get to it I logged into my Microsoft account/OneDrive/Settings (gear wheel top right of IE window) then device backup's in left menu.

    I have just installed Windows 10 and noticed that my back up date was 2-3 weeks old, I've made quite a few modern app changes and wanted a new back up so I deleted the back up but it will not re sync.

    I have tried turning Sync settings option off and on again but the back up will not run, does anyone know how often it runs and it there a way of forcing it to back up my settings.

    Thanks

    Tony

    From what I know there is no Sync settings like it was with Windows 8/8.1 right now you can not backup your settings to OneDrive

    So if I was to do a format and reinstall I would lose all my settings and apps etc?

    Yes I am pretty sure that what will happen if you will format maybe but just maybe some kind of basic settings will be restore

    Onedrive works perfectly fine, you just have to log in first. Click your Onedrive app and it will walk you through it.

    It will sync whenever files are changed on the computer (in the Onedrive folder, or whenever you log in, and possibly at intervals. So often, so much so that I never even think about it because everything is constantly up to date.
