    OneDrive has stopped working


    Since the last Windows updates a couple of days, I frequently get "OneDrive has stopped working" messages.

    I don't really use OneDrive, but the messages are annoying. I know this is a bit vague, but have anyone else experienced this and know how to fix it?

    Running Win 8.1 with Update 1 and all available updates.

    If you do not use Onedrive, you may disable it.

    If you wish you may uninstall Onedrive from your system providing it is not syncing with other programs.

    To be clear, that tutorial just tells you how to remove the folders, not OneDrive itself since it is embedded into Windows 8.1...

    In Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1, OneDrive is more deeply integrated at the system level. Your OneDrive folders are now displayed in the navigation pane of File Explorer on the desktop for easier access and management in Windows 8.1. In addition, the OneDrive app will still always be available on your Start screen for access since it can no longer be uninstalled in Windows 8.1.
