OneDrive Icons Always Syncing

less than 1 minute read

Description:

OneDrive icons will be stuck in a continuous upload fashion, even though everything has been synced. This is usually caused by documents being uploaded on exit in Office applications.

To Resolve:

  1. Close the OneDrive system tray icon on your taskbar.

  2. Open Task Manager and kill any of the following:

    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    
    groove.exe  
    msosync.exe  
    msouc.exe  
    winword.exe  
    excel.exe  
    powerpnt.exe
    
  3. Run => localappdata%\Microsoft\Office\15.0

  4. Delete the OfficeFileCache folder completely.

  5. Start OneDrive back up and go to Settings => Uncheck ‘Use office to work on files..’

    • I use OneDrive as a backup solution with Office365 and never have anyone but me using my documents so I don’t use this option. Obviously if you want that ability, you can disregard this fix.
