    OneDrive file storage keeps disabling


    Hey all, I've been using 8.1 for the majority of the year and it has been mostly good. One issue I am noticing now is that the File Storage feature periodically shuts off and then the button in the settings won't stay on. I am wondering if anyone else has run into this bug because it is extremely annoying. Everything is up to date and there is a relatively low amount of stuff on my machine since I used the refresh function 2 months ago. The thing I've noticed though is after turning it on, I need to immediately hit "see my files in one drive" for it to actually stay on. Any info is great.

    Thanks!

    Are you running on a metered connection? If not, try and install the latest updates, I think there were some big updates for onedrive integration quite recently.

    Nothing on metered. I ran a MS Fix it for OneDrive which seemed to fix it
