Onedrive issues on Windows 11

New Contributor

I have updated my windows to 11 (build 22000.132) and I am experiencing an issue on OneDrive. When I open the file explorer and click on the OneDrive folders, it takes long time to open my folders and sometimes it even freezes. Every time I click on the folder, it appears to be loading (as the mouse cursor would become a little small blue circle). Even tough I keep my folders and files on my local drive, the issue still persists. The folder loading behavior is normal on other non-OneDrive related folders in my local drives. 


I experienced similar issues on my NAS-related folders and I suspect this issues would exist in network drives.

I had the same problem but seems to be resolved in latest build 22000.160. If you still experience on this this build (avail in Beta and Dev) then log it, if you haven't on the feedback hub.

Thanks for your information. The issue was resolved after I tried a clean install.@RobQ_WIMVP 

I'm still having this issue, it started today after an update. It takes around 1 minute every time I click in any file that is in a One Drive folder. I'm in version 22000.1 and when I check for updates it says I'm up to date.

Same problem here, on two separate computers. One on 22000.178, the other on dev build 22449

I have this still on 22000.178 but not on Dev build 22449.. New build coming today so will check again...

I'm on 22000.184 and still having this issue. I'm starting to freak out as I'm unable to work properly.

Did you do a clean install of Windows or onedrive?

Same here on an update install and then a factory reset with reinstallation of Windows 11 without keep the personal files and apps. Build 22000.184

Really hard to work with OneDrive in these conditions. I'm sad and consider coming back to Windows 10 until a real fix is available.



I was able to solve it by a reset without keeping files. It was sad I had to g through that to solve it.
