    Looks like a change has been made. I have updated the downloads in the tutorial to include this location as well now.

    Thank you. :)

    I gave this a shot within my Virtualbox, but that didn't work either.
    The icon was changed to default exe icon (like old DOS exe files that have no icon), but the entry was still there.
    But I found the right registry entry :)
    I had to delete the following registry entry completely:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]
    Now OneDrive is not shown in any of the previous positions.
    Thanks for your advise!

    I have a frustrating problem that I have wasted half a day on now.

    I use both OneDrive personal and OneDrive for Business on my work computer. Both services work - they autostart on login and show the syncing clouds in the notification area (blue cloud for business and white cloud for personal) and my files are synced. So far so good.

    The problem is the icons in the Navigation Pane of File Explorer. The OneDrive for Business is present but the OneDrive personal is not! I have checked these keys and ensured that "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000001:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]

    And I checked that this key exists:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]

    For some reason the OneDrive personal icon won't appear in the Navigation Pane. I tried to find where Windows 10 gets its system logs so that I could see if File Explorer emits a message when it starts up or when I change the value in Regedit for "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" but I can't find where File Explorer logs are (or if they exist).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    So my problem is quite similar and I know when it started. All was fine until I moved the OneDrive folder to another drive. Everything works just fine, but the OneDrive Icon / Link disappeared from the Windows Explorer Navigation Pane (Windows 10 Slow Ring / Standard Consumer Build, up to date). No matter what I do and I've followed the very same instructions to ADD it back, but no joy. I have unlinked the account, disabled OneDrive, re-enabled, set up OneDrive from scratch pointing to the new drive location... nothing has worked.

    I'm thinking it has something to do with being on a different physical drive other than the system drive.

    Has anyone run into this before and have come up with a fix? Any help is very much appreciated.

    Hello Jim, :)

    I believe that OneDrive Business replaces the personal OneDrive.

    If you like for now, you could "Pin to Quick access" your personal %UserProfile%\OneDrive folder to have available in the Navigation Pane under the Quick access group.

    Hello Brink,

    I do have the location pinned to Quick Access for now, but that's not what I want. Ideally I want the typically standard behavior with OneDrive in the Nav Pane just like 'This PC' and 'Network'.

    Also, the OneDrive application now handles OneDrive (personal) as well as OneDrive for Business and now lately even SharePoint Team Sites (pretty well, too) so no longer are there two separate applications for personal and business, just one app for both. As a result, synchronization on either side is finally working pretty well again!

    With the latest Cumulative update just released today, I'm hoping that will correct the issue and I'm about to give that a try. If not, I guess I'm holding out for the Creator's Update to do the job. We will see.

    Thanks. - Jim

    Consider that the (Default) value property should also be given the data 'OneDrive' as it is used for (mouse over) tooltips.
    Also, the same change needs to be made to your Dropbox instructions

    I have a problem with 2 users.

    Their OneDrive\Sharepoint folder suddenly disappeared from the Navigation Pane without any changes. I'm having big trouble bringing it back because everything I tried has failed. This has happened not long after updating to the latest updates (Windows Fall Creators Update). I mentioned Sharepoint because we use office365 at the office. We also use the new OneDrive client (not the onedrive for business - that was a piece of junk).

    I tried resetting OneDrive, and I also tried editing the registry - HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}. But at both cases, this registry was missing. I tried adding the registry (also adding "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" to 1) but this changed nothing.

    I also tried the .reg file at the first page of this topic, but it changed nothing.

    I'm suspecting that the new updates messed things up...

    Please help.

    Hello rronge, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    That's odd. The registry entries for OneDrive should be there by default.

    If you like, see if the steps below to install the latest OneDrive may be able to help.

    1. Download and install the latest version of OneDrive that's rolling out with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
    2. Restart your computer.
    3. After your computer restarts, select the Start button, search for “OneDrive”, and then select the OneDrive desktop app.
    4. When OneDrive Setup starts, enter your personal account, or your work or school account, and then select Sign in.
