Check How to Reset OneDrive in Windows 10

If you’re having issues with OneDrive on your Windows 11/10 PC, a OneDrive client hard reset can help you fix most issues. Let’s take a look at how you can reset OneDrive to default settings. OneDrive is great, but it’s not bug free. Although not common, you will occasionally need to reset OneDrive in Windows 10 to fix sync issues. However, before you reset OneDrive, you need to know what actually happens during this process.

The most important thing is that you will not lose any data when you reset OneDrive. All files stored locally on your PC will stay on your PC and all files stored on OneDrive will stay on OneDrive. However, all existing connections will be disconnected – the purpose of resetting is to disconnect and reconnect. Even if you’ve only selected certain folders to back up to OneDrive, you’ll need to re-enter those settings when you reconnect to OneDrive. OneDrive doesn’t remember your previous settings. Sound cumbersome?

The process really isn’t that hard, but you can always try just restarting OneDrive. Unlike a hard reset, which resets your settings and disconnects your Windows 10 PC from OneDrive, a reset just shuts down and restarts OneDrive and leaves all settings intact. Below are the steps to reset Microsoft OneDrive in Windows 10.

How to reset OneDrive in Windows 10

  • First, close the OneDrive app. To do this, right-click the OneDrive cloud icon in the notification area and click Quit.
  • Press WinKey + R to bring up the Run dialog.
  • In the Run Command dialog box, type/paste the following command:
    • %localappdata%MicrosoftOneDriveonedrive.exe /reset
  • Press ENTER.
  • This restarts OneDrive. If OneDrive doesn’t start automatically after the restart, start it manually by running:
    • %localappdata%MicrosoftOneDriveonedrive.exe
