      I’ve been using OneDrive on Windows 7 Pro for several years, the “personal” version. Today when i unlocked my computer OneDrive was displaying a window asking for my OneDrive email address. If I enter the address, it opens mt OneDrive folder in Explorer, but it’s not connected. If, while I’m prompted to enter the email I go to the system tray and click on the OneDrive icon it tells me I’m not logged in and I can look in settings from the More button.

      Settings shows me as linked to OneDrive, and gives me the ability to unlink my PC.

      How do I go about getting OneDrive reconnected? I’d rather not have to redownload everything as there is about 100Gb in my OneDrive…

      I too am having issues with OneDrive and office 365 on my windows 7 pro machine and it it seems to be related to credential manager not saving my login credentials. Also started about a month ago after a windows update I believe. I think it’s MSs way to force me to abandon windows 7 and upgrade to windows 10. I’m surprised that it’s been a month and no one else has replied. I’m sure others are having this issue as both mine and my wife’s laptops are experiencing this. So far, I have no solutions and I have searched relentlessly for an answer.
