    Reliability Monitor critical events


    While the reliability monitor and event viewer can be useful troubleshooting tools, I have trouble what can safely be ignored. For example, I did a clean install of Windows 8.1, using local signin and did not setup OneDrive. Daily, there is a Critical Event complaining that OneDrive stopped working. (It might be more critical if it DID work! ) So, is this 'critical' for system stability or 'critical' for MS strategy?

    I'd say for later one. I don't know why they are pushing One Drive like they are so eager to spend money on online storage. One Drive is useful if you have multiple connected devices but on a single computer, to be used as backup, internet would have to be very fast and even with a Gigabit connection not very practical for large amount of data.
