    OneDrive sync issues and UAC?

    Before I upgraded to windows 10, I used Dropbox as my cloud service. With OneDrive integrated into Windows, I figured I'd switch but I cannot get it to sync for the life of me.

    I tried all the standard fixes, sign in with MS account, exit and restart, unlink, re-link, etc. nothing works.

    I thought I fixed it when I deleted everything out of the OneDrive folder and from browser view then re linked and moved my content back into the OneDrive folder. It uploaded everything and the icon switched to "complete" or "finished" or whatever.

    Didn't work, I added a couple photos from my iPhone 5s and the desktop app just sits at "processing changes". The photos are accessible through the browser and the iPhone app. Added content to OneDrive through a browser on a different computer, that won't pull down either.

    Only reason I think UAC might have something to do with it is because I get a UAC window when moving a file into the OneDrive directory. This does not seem like it should be happening but I cannot find ANYTHING about it on the usual help forums, so I actually created an account to start a new thread on the topic.

    Please help!

    Syncing for one drive works for me fine, if you are getting UAC errors then I suggest that's where you should start looking.
