When I try to change my files/folders synced, I get:

We couldn't save the list of folders you chose to sync. Please try again.

[OK]

 

Why?

Did you ever figure this out? I am getting the same thing.

@CTMedina1776 had to just wait and give it time.  Maybe a reboot.  Not sure but thankfully I haven't seen it lately.

I had this problem and it appears that you cannot change the list of folders to sync while a sync operation is in progress.

 

The only workaround I found worked was to unlink the PC from the OneDrive account and then reconnect to the account setting the new list of folders to sync during the setup process.
