    Crap indeed. Is the Onedrive icon still showing on the taskbar or sys tray and do you have a metered internet connection

    Nope, no tray icon. I'm not sure what a metered connection is.

    Verify with your lSP (Internet service provider). A metered Internet connection is when a service provider charges by the amount of data sent and received by your PC.

    In the Task Manager, processes tab if you see OneDrive Sync Engine right click it, reboot the computer and it may reset itself.

    Run sfc /scannow in the elevated command prompt to fix any possible system file corruption.

    Ok, done.

    Got a message that some error were fixed. Will wait a while and report back if this did it.

    EDIT: Got the same OneDrive error message not 5 minutes after rebooting... :-(

    Yes, that's what it said.

    I just found and tried this. Could this possibly work?

    You may try it if you wish but basically it is the same as the tutorial I already gave you and I am doubtful it will work. It is to embedded in Windows 8.1

    Just double checking but which version of Windows 8 do you have? 8 or 8.1? Being that you mention OneDrive, it should be 8.1 but I make no assumptions here.

    Also, being that OneDrive is acting up like you say, you may have an issue with Windows itself. Have you noticed any other problems.. however small they may be?

    Also, where'd you get your copy of Windows from?

    Lastly I happen to agree with Nuccii about the link you provided for a fix, and the one we have here. Did you even try the link he provided???

    Thanks.
