    Sorry for the late reply though. I was pretty busy with my university these days.

    So I have tried going to those sites, and there was one solution which suggests me that I should delete the Office Document Cache. I tried to, but it wouldn't work anyway. The "Sync Pending" status still shows, though it still appears to be synced successfully on OneDrive site when I logged in my account.
    Could be a bug, but at least it is confirmed to have synced.

    I later realized that folders such as Contacts, Favorites, Searches were all missing.
    Went searching and found that they're in the \Shell Folders instead of \User Shell Folders.
    I was really confused about the difference and which registry key values to modify.

    But then I found an old post with you in it Brink!
    Registry: differences between Shell Folders and User Shell Folders? Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums

    The entries in this subkey can appear in both the Shell Folders subkey and the User Shell Folders and in both HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER. The entries that appear in user User Shell Folders take precedence over those in Shell Folders. The entries that appear in HKEY_CURRENT_USER take precedence over those in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. \Shell Folders exists for backwards compatibility apparently.
    Looks like I was mistaken:

    The Shell Folders key is a "legacy" key. If you look at the first value under that key, its name is: "!Do not use this registry key" .

    There is a Favorites value under User Shell Folders. For the other folders, they are only created when the folders are relocated. For instance, if you relocate Contacts, a value named {56784854-C6CB-462B-8169-88E350ACB882} will be created. Others, like Screenshots, only need explicit redirection if they are no longer a subfolder of Pictures. Here's a list extracted from the FolderDescriptions key under HKLM\...\Explorer:

    My folders are synced correctly, but when the syncing is done, that blue symbols still present. Can I do anything to make it "green" tick?

    Hello,

    Technically, the folder is a symbolic link that is a hard link junction point to OneDrive, so I suppose it will always be in a constant state of syncing with the specified OneDrive folder.

    Brink,

    Grateful for your help.

    I followed your instructions and entered my request and got the answer below:

    C:\Windows\System32>mklink /j "User\user\OneDrive\Rotary" "C:\Rotary"The system cannot find the path specified.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help,

    Hello dgo47,

    Just to verify:

    Is "User\user\OneDrive" a valid path to create a Rotary folder in? I'm thinking it should have been "C:\Users\user\OneDrive\Rotary" instead.

    Does the "C:\Rotary" folder currently exists when running the command?

    Brink,

    I am now trying to set up OneDrive on my laptop and I want the Rotary folder on RLS ,inc to update the Rotary file in the C: drive. Thus both my desktop and laptop would be in sync..

    When I entered the same instruction on my laptop as before (mklink /j "C:\Users\user\OneDrive - RLS ,inc\Rotary" "C:\Rotary"), the system came back "Can not create a file when that file already exists". Obviously there is already a file called Rotary in the OneDrive folder.

    How can I link the folder Rotary in OneDrive to my C Drive?

    Thank for your help.

    Do you already have a C:\Users\user\OneDrive - RLS ,inc\Rotary folder?

    If so, that is why you are getting this error since this folder already exists.
