I want to use File Explorer for faster access to Onedrive, but for some reason, the Onedrive in File Explorer does not sync at all, it remains the same all the time with no update. How can I get it properly sync?

P.S. The Onedrive app and webpage version all work perfectly fine.

  • You're right, I think somehow the oneDrive is not properly set up, after reinstalled and went through the setup, it syncs now. Thanks :) – Amarth Gûl Nov 17 '18 at 23:44
