Hello , i've been using Onedrive since it was skydrive under windows 7 , now that im on 8.1 update 1 pro x64 im still using it but recently i've come across with a problem.
The onedrive tray icon says that onedrive is starting up all the time , no matter what im doing eg: syncing or adding files and the icon remain's the same like in the picture.

Can someone give me some help with it please?

It is synching - what happens if you hover the mouse over it - it should say how many files are still not synched or are to be uploaded/downloaded. When I did clean install of 8.1 it took 4 days to synch my files (45,000 files about 3GB) but once it finished it has been fine.

Thank you for your answer but i seem to know what happened.
When i headed over the site of onedrive there was the computer name i've had since i used skydrive under windows 7 , so after upgrading there were sync errors since the files were already on my pc but onedrive was trying to re-allocate them on my system.
After deleting every folder of onedrive seem to work , now i've to cry until i can re-upload my work on cloud t_t

Good news. It is terribly slow when you first synch - I never figured out why.
