        I posted this, I thought, but then realized I wasn’t logged in, so…

        When I try to map my personal OneDrive to “P” with the following command

        net use /PERSISTENT:YES p: https://d.docs.live.net/0************ /user:******@********.com xxxxxx (password)

        I get the following error:

        The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not been authenticated.

        But on this site:  https://petri.com/7-ways-to-authenticate-users-and-devices-in-windows-10

        It seems to be saying that if I am logged in with a MS account, I am authenticated.

        What’s the story, and how can I fix it?

        Try the password before the /USER.

        net use /PERSISTENT:YES p: https://d.docs.live.net/0**  xxxx /user:**@**.com

        cheers, Paul

        Or do it from Explorer.

        Paul I tried it from explorer…nada.  I’ll try the command.

         

        Thanks

        Paul that didn’t seem to work either.

        I had some tell me that mapping a network drive isn’t supported any longer.  Why then is the command in My Computer?

        I’ve had some tell me “What’s the need?”  Ease of use accessing/copying/moving files between the network location and the local drive.

        I had this working back an update or so — few months  — back.

        And then of course there is simply the agitation of something that should work not working.

        This was first suggested to me by someone in Microsoft Office support.

        So what the heck?

        Ah me…

        When I just went to my OneDrive(s) the Personal drive showed a CID, but my Office OneDrive does not appear to have one.

        Alex, I tried mapping “P”, my personal OneDrive, and it kept just coming back to the credentials screen, saying Access Denied.

        It always prompts with Microsoft Account/***@c***s.com, and I tried it both with and without the Microsoft Account but neither worked.

        ***PERSONAL INFORMATION REMOVED***

        I double-checked my password, logging directly into my OneDrive, which I can do just fine.

        Dunno.

        It seems you have a user / password problem, not a command problem.
        Check the user and password actually connect to OD.

        cheers, Paul

        Paul,

        My “P” – personal OneDrive maps fine now.  It doesn’t necessarily “like” running automatically at startup, but it will run and map properly.

        The command used is

        net use /PERSISTENT:YES p: https://d.docs.live.net/0D0CE3E008CF73CA /user: email address removed xxxxxxxxx (Password)

        Now if I could just get my MS Office OneDrive to play nice as “O” I’d be happy.

        You only need to use that command once because you have told it to persist. Do you run it every time?

        cheers, Paul
