Previously I though this was only working for the United States (or from somewhere else using a proxy), but this worked fine for me from within the Netherlands.

Enjoy your extra cloud storage.

OneDrive / SkyDrive – fix for onedrive sync engine host stopped working

As an IT professional I tend to work on multiple systems (tablets, laptops, desktops) and I use OneDrive (SkyDrive) extensively to always have access to the latest versions of my documents.

I love OneDrive, but today when I wanted to continue working on my desktop I got an error : “onedrive sync engine host stopped working”. So first thing I tried was just restarting OneDrive, which didn’t work. Then I figured … ah well let’s just reboot and see what happens.

When this also didn’t work I looked online and saw I wasn’t the only one experiencing this. I also came across the OneDrive Troubleshooter tool. After I ran this, followed the instructions and waited about 5-10 minutes, it worked properly again.

I hope this helps you to resolve similar issues.

Notes:

  • In processes the process shows as OneDrive Sync Engine Host , but the process is still SkyDrive.exe
  • In the application log, an event 1000 was generated with the following information:Faulting application name: skydrive.exe, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x53291a62
