    It is synching - what happens if you hover the mouse over it - it should say how many files are still not synched or are to be uploaded/downloaded. When I did clean install of 8.1 it took 4 days to synch my files (45,000 files about 3GB) but once it finished it has been fine.

    Thank you for your answer but i seem to know what happened.
    When i headed over the site of onedrive there was the computer name i've had since i used skydrive under windows 7 , so after upgrading there were sync errors since the files were already on my pc but onedrive was trying to re-allocate them on my system.
    After deleting every folder of onedrive seem to work , now i've to cry until i can re-upload my work on cloud t_t

    Good news. It is terribly slow when you first synch - I never figured out why.
