    My Onedrive account won't sign in and therefore doesn't sync. Found a number of suggested remedies and none of them work. I am at the point that the only way I think I am going to get it back is to do a clean install of Windows 10 and i certainly would like to avoid that.

    As it is built in to Windows 10, I can't uninstall it and reinstall it and there is no way to manually sign in.

    Really need some help here.

    Where?

    Having said that, I think Microsoft deviousness may be at work here. I did change my log in to my Microsoft account from a local account and it didn't connect but it did when I rebooted. When I changed back to a local account it wouldn't sign in again.

    I suspect Microsoft has forced you to log in with a Microsoft account in a recent update in order to gather yet more data.

    As of now, I am logged in using a Microsoft account. I suspect if I go back to a local account, it wouldn't sign in again. Up until recently, I used my Microsoft account to log in to Onedrive when i set it up and it did so automatically every time even though I was using a local account.

    No warnings at all about this and i have wasted an afternoon trying to solve the problem the ***xxxs.
