    Onedrive has ceased to sync


    Good afternoon

    Without warning, Onedrive has ceased to sync. The little ticks have disappeared and the icon is missing from the system tray. If I launch the programme manually nothing happens. I shall of course continue to ferret around but suggestions gratefully received.

    Check in settings if you are linked to an account. Also do you have Files on Demand active?

    Thanks! (a) Yes (b) afaics this is accessed via the onedrive cloud icon, which is missing. I did not change anything to provoke this misbehaviour.

    If nothing else pops up and no fixes are found, you may want to re-install OneDrive and let it fix/repair whatever may be missing or broken.

    Click on the "Need to reinstall" link:

    Re-installing seemed to do the trick - many thanks!
