Let’s reset OneDrive and check the result. This has helped to fix similar issues whenever I have run into it when I have been out at customer office locations. It won’t affect your files, but reset does re-sync all of your OneDrive data, which could take some time depending on the size of your data. However, you can reset OneDrive by doing the following:

  1. Press the‘Windows key + R’to open the ‘Run‘ Window.
  2. In the Run Window enter the following:%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset
  3. ClickOK.  The One Drive system tray icon on the desktop should disappear and re-appear after a minute or two.
  4. If the One Drive system tray icon does not re-appear after a few minutes, do the following.

In the Run Window Enter:


Hope this helps anyone with this issue.
