Hello.

 

After a catastrophic SSD failure I have created a clean install of windows. Luckily everything is backed up!

 

Anyhow I signed into onedrive (work email) on my fresh install and my standard one drive has synced just fine. However work has some sharepoints as well.

 

Its been easy in the past, on the onedrive icon on the pc click 'view on line'. A browser opens and I can see the share points on the left select one then click sync. It offers to open onedrive on your desktop which you agree and in principle that should be it, things start syncing.

 

In this instance no. All it ever says is 'Sorry, Onedrive Can't add your folder right now, please try again'

 

Thats it, no errors, no advice, tough, move on pleb.

 

But I really need to sync those files.

 

I have tried logging out of onedrive and back in, no difference.

 

The only difference I can think is my old windows may not have been the latest version, which this new install is 20H2

 

If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

@garethsnaim Hello,


Does the issue repeat itself on another folder? What happens if you try to sync a new "demo" folder?

Yours sincerely,
