I've been getting a critical error recently with OneDrive when it attempts to synchronize:

OneDrive critical error

I use the OneDrive component mainly to sync with SharePoint files, so this has become very annoying. This started happening recently after I mapped a network drive to a remote server, but I cannot verify that this is actually the cause, and I have since disconnected that mapped drive. I've gone through multiple steps in an attempt to remedy this.

Any ideas?

Windows 8.1 Pro, 64bit

After installing the latest Windows updates, my error went away. I installed all three important updates listed.
