    Hi. I have 2 files on my ipad Onedrive that are not anywhere else in One Drive (laptop, iphone) – they’ve been deleted.  When I press on the file, the radio button to the left comes up, but the button is greyed out and I cannot delete.  The 3 elipses (dots) to the right are there, but only show details. No functions available.

    I was going to log out and back into One Drive on my Ipad. Just wondering what that will do – I don’t usually do it and I know sometimes, logging out can cause more problems than it’s worth. But I assume if I logout, and back in, my Ipad will sync with Onedrive and everything will come back to where it was prior to logout, except, maybe these 2 files will be gone! ; )

    Are there any gotchas to logging out of Onedrive on the IOS app on the Ipad that you all are aware of? thanks! Donna

      None that I know of.

      If they are  .DS_Store and __MACOSX extensions on the files  there’s generally nothing to worry about a little annoying when viewing the saved files\folders on Windows either in a Drive or One Drive I believe they are created for saving file attributes.
