    OneDrive link in Explorer Favorites keeps getting removed


    My notebook is setup with a local account instead being logged in with a Microsoft. Since Microsoft doesn't allow you to use OneDrive in Windows 8.1 with a local or network domain, I'm using the program syncDriver so I can continue using OneDrive on my notebook.

    The issue I'm having is that when I add a link to OneDrive in my Windows Explorer Favorites, the link will get removed at some point without my interaction. My guess is that Windows is removing the link from favorites but I can't figure out when or why it's doing this.

    Any ideas on how to stop Windows from doing this?

    If you like, you might see how mapping your OneDrive in This PC may work for you. You will also be able to add the mapped OneDrive to Favorites.
