        My Onedrive icon has stopped showing and is no longer syncing. I have tried everything I can find on the internet to no avail. Nothing works. I  can find my Onedrive files by opening Onedrive but I then have to download them if I want them on my hard drive. Not exactly syncing! Any ideas David

        Do you ever Restart your computer (not Shutdown/power on)?

        Can you open OneDrive from the Start menu?

          Yes I have tried restarting my Surface Pro

          When I try to lunch Onedrive from the Start menu I always get a “Oops something went wrong message”

          I have tried removing Onedrive and reinstalling to no avail.

            This is what I did and it seems to have worked (cross fingers) albeit with a few recent file changes lost.

            >>Deep within the OS is a backup copy of the OneDriver installer. To find it, go to  File Explorer > This PC and open the system drive where Windows 10 is installed (usually C:\). Open the Windows folder and then open the WinSxS folder. In the search box, type onedrive then wait until the OneDriveSetup setup file appears.<<
