OneDrive disappeared from drive bar/menu W7

Post by Sammy » 08 Apr 2015, 21:12

For unknown reasons OneDrive disappeared form the drive bar/menu on my Windows 7 machine (Salamander 3.06). Tried a clean installation of both , but without result.
Can the OneDrive icon be added manually or is there an other fix to get it back?

I have same problem on Windows 7, I tried downgrade to Salamander 3.05, but it doesn't help. On Windows 8.1 everything works OK, so there is only problem on Windows 7. It's realy helpful feature for me, so I will be happy, if you can fix it as soon as possible.

You can add your OneDrive folder to Hot Paths in the meantime.

Thanks for reporting this! I have fixed it. MS has just renamed key in registry: SkyDrive to OneDrive in key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft.

You can bypass this problem temporarily in your Windows: add REG_SZ value UserFolder to abadoned key (it's empty on my Windows) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\SkyDrive, value is path to your OneDrive local folder. You can see current value of UserFolder in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive.

How to do it: start regedit.exe, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\SkyDrive, use right click context menu > New > String Value.
