    I solved my OneDrive problem by completely uninstalling and reinstalling OneDrive - see post 9 at OneDrive Problem After Anniversary Upgrade

    OneDrive now works fine in all accounts no thanks to Microsoft and their Anniversary Update.

    It's frustrating when they break their own software like this, I'm really scared that some day all my backups might disappear for technical reasons 😐 Anyway, good thing you found a solution, I'll have a look at it for future reference 😅

    For me it didn't work.

    Or to be more precise, it did work, but as soon as I copied my folder back to be synched it stopped working again.

    I have several hundreds of unsynched files that I need syncing, so I can't just delete then all and restart from the ground up.

    it seems some files are breaking onedrive, but I can't find which. I have tried to find any with too long a file path, but couldn't. Powershell command tells me the longest file path is 222 characters.

    I don't know what to do anymore.

    Have you tried manually uploading those files via the online OneDrive interface? Maybe that will let everything sync properly once you unlink and re-download all your stuff? I would make a '.old' folder with the backup and then see if it syncs properly once everything has been uploaded without the desktop app..? >. >'

    Dunno if I'm making sense here, sorry

    You made sense.

    It only is that I have several gigabytes to sync, and it will take a LONG time to do it with my connection (1mbps upload), probably more than a week to sync it. But I'm kind of resigned to do it.

    Since it is on a memory stick, I will probably just format my surface pro 4 and then try with a freshly formatted computer, possibly before any updates to see if I can sync it the easy way.

    I will do this because then OneDrive will sync the difference only, which is several orders of magnitude less data than synching everything up again.

    Right, data speeds is a huge issue for this problem - I had 18gb to sync each time I tried different ways -. -'
    Well, I hope the format will be enough for your case - it was no help for me, but I guess there's a chance 😅
