    Hey Edwin,

    If you have it also, can you confirm David's findings or do you get something different when you click the OneDrive icon?

    I just noticed David has the OneDrive 'folder' tile; I can't find mine!

    You did apply those Win 8.1.1 updates; yes?

    @adamf: That is the easiest and most logical solution; however, since there are many that have already applied those Win 8.1.1 updates, and may be using OneDrive at present, there must be someone that can confirm David's findings or advise him differently.

    Well actually I did install the leaked upgrade. For some reason (unknown to me) I had my skydrive folder renamed skydrive.old and it took 3 days to synchnonise only 3GB of data. I didn't complain about it as I'd downloaded a leaked version so it was my problem I thought. We will see what happens.

    Thanks for that explanation. So, now we have three forum members (yourself, Edwin, and David) all experiencing different issues with regard to OneDrive and a fourth (me) that looks like it is ready to go but I can't test it because I don't have an MS account. All of this is giving more credence to the fact that the 8.1.1 updates may be the cause (as suggested by Tony and yourself); however, given that we may all have downloaded those updates from different sources, we may be experiencing different results based on same. Here's hoping David will respond soon.

    I got mine from Mediafire from here - Windows 8.1 update leaks to the web, direct from Redmond

    Same as Edwin I think.

    EDIT: - I'm not sure if there is any big advantage with it yet.
