How To Stop Other PC Users From Seeing Onedrive Fold

Apr 6, 2014

I really like the onedrive PC feature from Microsoft. It allows to upload my work files seamlessly. But I do not want other PC users (different user accounts on the same computer) to access that folder. I know they might not be able to view the files but I also don't want them to see the content inside the folder.

Can it be done with the same old 'folder permission' settings? If yes, how to do that?

OneDrive And SkyDrive In Windows 8.1?

Sep 14, 2014

I have been using Windows 8.1 desktop (Dell 8700) for a little more than 6 months. I am very happy with its performance. The computer is very fast. But here is one hitch. As all of you might know that the original SkkyDrive was converted into OneDrive during Microsoft auto-updating process. OneDrive is the one supposed to be used.

Right now, I see both SkyDrive and OneDrive folders in the computer (even in my Windows 7 computers). There is no SkyDrive in "Uninstall program". So I could not remove the SkyDrive folder. Just "delete" SkyDrive folder" does not work either. Because of this problem, I was not able to study how to use OneDrive.

What is interesting to me is that SkyDrive seems to be still active and OneDrive, dormant. For example, c:UsersusernameOneDrivePicturesCamera Roll is active. The Camera Roll folder in the SkyDrive shows all pictures taken today with iPhone. On the other hand, OneDriveCameral Roll folder has a few old pictures.

how to get rid of the SkyDrive and force OneDrive as an active Cloud storage?

OneDrive Files Available Online Only

Jul 21, 2014

I've just worked with a friend set up his new Windows 8.1 Asus desktop. When we open the OneDrive folder using File Explorer, next to each file it says "Online only". On his old Windows 8 computer, it says "Available offline" next to each file. Is there someplace we need to change a setting to make the files available offline on the new computer?

Windows 8.1 - OneDrive Folder On PC?

Aug 22, 2014

What is the purpose of the OneDrive Folder under C:UserMynameOneDrive? I know I can save files directly to OneDrive (in the cloud) or I can move/copy stuff to the OneDrive in the cloud. OneDrive then Syncs the cloud stuff to the User OneDrive folder. What's the point? Just a backup or does Windows 8.1 use the Synced information on the local machine (C:UserMynameOneDrive) to speed up processing and then Sync it back to the Cloud? I think I like it but just want to understand what is going on. Is there a "white" paper or something that explains in a little more detail, some link. Also, does it then make sense to include the OneDrive folder in the Library so that it gets backed up using Windows 8.1's File History function?

Apps / Software :: Sky / OneDrive Not Syncing?

Apr 2, 2014

Until the other day my drive was working perfectly. Since then I have made no changes to the system, but syncing has stopped. The drive icon constantly says checking for changes and then appears to crash. It has also started "finding files" and i am unable to change options to view online of offline while "setup is being completed" the trouble is it never completes... I can add docs etc from the web and it will sync on other PCs but my win 8.1 tablet refuses to play ball. I have spoken with Microsoft and they want me to pay for the solution (maybe). I have tried the troubleshooter but no luck.

How To Get To Select Preferences For OneDrive In Windows 8.1

Aug 15, 2014

I see the App for OneDrive on the Windows 8.1.1 Start Window but I don't see any "Select Preferences" in a drop down menu that is referred to in a CloudDock article "7 OneDrive Tricks You Didn't Know About".

Can I/Do I need to install the Desktop App in addition to the Windows 8.1.1 App shown on the Start Screen? The OneDrive Desktop Support page says all I get is the ability to work share for Office if I install the Desktop App in Windows 8.1! Is the Select Preferences Obsolete with Windows 8.1.1?

OneDrive Files Will Not Open In Word For Editing

Jul 20, 2014

I recently downloaded OneDrive onto my two computers.

Computer #1
Desktop 2007 Dell with Windows Vista, Word 2007, &
IE 9.0.8112.16421IC

Computer #2
Laptop Acer 2013 with Windows 8.1, Word 2010, &

On my old desktop the files can be opened in Word for editing with no problem but on the newer laptop my files will not open in Word for editing, only in Word Online. Editing this way messes up the formatting.

Apps / Software :: OneDrive / SkyDrive Won't Sync?

Jul 16, 2014

I have three machines running Windows 8.1 Update 1 and for some reason one of the machines does not like OneDrive. When I first boot the system the OneDrive Cloud appears in the tray. However, as soon as I hover the mouse over it to see the sync status the Cloud Icon goes away and I think I get the SkyDive 1000 error in the Event Log. I don't know what I did to screw it up on this machine

Tablets :: OneDrive Doesn't Have Option To Use Files Offline?

May 21, 2014

Just bought a Windows 8 tablet, and not knowing anything about it. Specifically what we were trying to do today was sync his documents from his desktop to the tablet. OneDrive seemed the easiest way to do that, so I installed the OneDrive app on his desktop and logged him in on the tablet. And there were the files. But the problem is, they're on the cloud, and he wants to be able to access them offline.

Through googling, I discovered that there is supposed to be an option in OneDrive to "make all files available offline," supposedly accessible through the Charms bar, under Settings -> Options. But alas, I followed all the directions everywhere, and that option was not there. I took an appropriate screenshot:

Similarly, there is no option to "make available offline" when I access options for individual documents within OneDrive (by swiping up or down).

Why is this option not where it is supposed to be?

Apps / Software :: OneDrive Link In Explorer Favorites Keeps Getting Removed?

Aug 19, 2014

My notebook is setup with a local account instead being logged in with a Microsoft. Since Microsoft doesn't allow you to use OneDrive in Windows 8.1 with a local or network domain, I'm using the program syncDriver so I can continue using OneDrive on my notebook.

The issue I'm having is that when I add a link to OneDrive in my Windows Explorer Favorites, the link will get removed at some point without my interaction. My guess is that Windows is removing the link from favorites but I can't figure out when or why it's doing this.

how to stop Windows from doing this?

Apps / Software :: OneDrive Windows 8.1 Sync Doesn't Work?

May 19, 2014

Whenever OneDrive tries to automatically sync its files (or manually too), there's a pop-up on the desktop saying: OneDrive Sync Engine Host - OneDrive Sync Engine Host has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

I have googled it a lot and tried the CMD command posted as a solution, but it didn't work unfortunately.

maybe fully reinstall OneDrive as it is a standard feature of Windows 8.1 Pro...

Maintenance :: Disk Space Analysis Tools Compatible With OneDrive?

Sep 15, 2014

I have just done a clean install of 8.1 on my old MacBook Pro as I broke the screen on my normal laptop. I could only afford to give 40GB to this new installation so I'm quite tight for space.

I've always used [URL] .... to check for disk usage but in my case it is not useful as it shows size of items not the size on disk. I have to keep my OneDrive files on-line only to save space but as they are reported as part of used disk space I am seeing 150% of my disk space is used which isn't useful really. In Disk Management I can see it is only 59%.

Any utility like WinDirStat that shows size on disk?

Dell :: Upgraded To Win 8.1 - SkyDrive And OneDrive / Both Labels Under File Folder

Apr 19, 2014

I had upgraded to Windows 8.1 after purchasing Inspiron 660s with Windows 8.0.

Under the Files Folder / Favorites group SkyDrive listed as a favorite. However, at the same level as Favorites, there is a OneDrive folder.

Under Windows 8.1, should not there be only OneDrive listed everywhere? Did something go wrong in the upgrade to 8.1?

Apps / Software :: Disable OneDrive Sync Engine From Starting With Windows?

Jun 27, 2014

is there a way to completely disable the OneDrive Sync Engine process from starting up with windows? I can't find it in the startup menu. Sometimes when it loads it will lock up my computer for about ~5 mins until anything becomes responsive. I was able to grab a screen shot of the process loading in the notifications. I just would like to disable OneDrive 100% if possible (running Win 8.1, update 1) as I do not use that service for anything.

Apps / Software :: Reliability History Message Says OneDrive Stopped Working

Jul 3, 2014

I am having a strange problem with OneDrive. I am running windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit + all updates.

On my desktop the OneDrive app works properly. It synchs as expected between my desktop and my OneDrive website. In system tray, the OneDrive icon shows it syncs regularly.

However, when I check my system in the Reliability Monitor, the reliability history shows a critical message "Microsoft OneDrive stopped working". If OneDrive works properly, then what is the reason for this warning message? Below is the detail I get when I click on the message. This message started to appear about 13 days ago.

Network / Sharing :: OneDrive Folder Automatically Syncs Up With Account In The Cloud

Apr 11, 2014

Having a strange issue with Onedrive. If I drag/drop files into my "local machine" onedrive folder it automatically syncs up with my onedrive account in the cloud. So the same files are both on my home system and in the cloud. That works. I can log on thru my browser at the onedrive site and log on, copy and download files...upload thru the browser and it will also show up on my local that works too.

The issue I'm having is if I use my metro tile screen, click on onedrive app, it opens up, I can see all the files in my onedrive account.....however if I right click while in app, then click upload it opens up my folder, I can pick the file I wish to upload and click "add to onedrive" nothing ever gets uploaded. No error message or anything, just nothing happens when using the app. No files ever show up or get uploaded. I can also pick a file using the onedrive app (from the cloud) and click download (to my local system), it allows me to pick the destination and hit OK, but I get an message " the file couldn't be saved" no matter where I decide to put it. So while onedrive is working for the most part if I bypass the windows 8 metro app, it is not working inside the app itself.
