    OneDrive Windows 8.1 sync doesn't work

    Hello everybody,

    Whenever OneDrive tries to automatically sync its files (or manually too), there's a pop-up on the desktop saying: OneDrive Sync Engine Host - OneDrive Sync Engine Host has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

    I have googled it a lot and tried the CMD command posted as a solution, but it didn't work unfortunately.

    Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem, or maybe fully reinstall OneDrive as it is a standard feature of Windows 8.1 Pro...

    Thanks in advance!
