From the past week or two, SkyDrive has stopped uploading files. There are about 400 files to upload and from the past week or two, it just says "Pending" below the files.

And sometimes, I get a popup which says "SkyDrive Sync Engine Host is restarting." Please help me!

This is likely to be part of a problem that has existed since at least September 2013:

Windows 8.1 SkyDrive Not Syncing

Microsoft has just posted a troubleshooting procedure:

How do I troubleshoot uploading, downloading and file syncing issues - Microsoft Community

Stay tuned to that Microsoft board for more news but the whole issue has been mismanaged. I have a similar problem with SkyDrive on Windows 8.1. None of the files/folders in my SkyDrive folder have been synced since I upgraded from 8 to 8.1 in early December. 'SkyDrive Sync Engine Host' is missing from my Task Manager and refuses to run.

This is a very serious problem. People are leaving SkyDrive for Dropbox and Google Drive. Paying SkyDrive subscribers are not getting the service they paid for. We will just have to wait and back up files some other way in the meantime.
