    How to Sync OneDrive Account not Associated with Microsoft Account?

    Hi there,

    I am new to Windows 10 and hope you can help me. I am trying to set up my OneDrive account to sync across two (soon to be three) PCs and am having trouble.

    I have an account with OneDrive for business through my university. I installed OneDrive on my Windows 7 laptop to sync my main bulk storage files. I logged in with my university username and began the sync no problem. Now, on my Windows 10 desktop, when I try to link OneDrive with my university account, I am told that this Microsoft account does not exist. What am I doing wrong?

    Also, I want to log into my computer using a local account, but sync to my university one drive account. Is it possible to do this?

    Thanks for your help!
