Losing OneDrive sync

Post by Jeff H »

Lately I've lost my sync with OneDrive twice and only noticed it was gone after a few days. I've had to go to the Start menu, type OneDrive, and click the OneDrive desktop app icon to restart it. That's not a problem, but going several days without noticing it is. Especially because I've got DSL and if there's a lot of uploading to catch up on it ties up our access to the internet for a while.

Can anyone tell me why this might be happening and how to prevent it, or at least how to get a notification when syncing stops?

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Book and I have Office 365.

Thanks,
- Jeff

Actually I had found that resource the first time it happened. I didn't go all the way through it at that time, after getting the app started again, but this time I did. At this point I'll plan to try #8 and 9 if it happens again.

Thanks Hans.
