    I just got a notification on my PC and Surface that "this device has been removed from OneDrive.?

    Anyone else seeing this happen?

    This has also just happened to me. Very painful as I have so many files.

    I'd rather not move to dropbox or something else but Microsoft are not making is easy for me to like them.

    Yep...me too. Must be a service outage that is resulting in these messages. Hopefully Microsoft will resolve and the problem will fix itself from a client point of view.

    Yes, I received the message as well. Seems to be "re-syncing" everything, eating up lots of bandwidth :(

    Got the message on two machines so far tonight.

    Microsoft's file sync servicesOneDrive and OneDrive for Businessare too unreliable to depend upon. I find Google Drive and Dropbox far more dependable.

    Happened to me too, both on my SP3 with Win10, and my home desktop on Win7 Home Prem.

    This thread on MS Answers, also from earlier today, is the only other thread I've seen mention it:
    h t t p : / / answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/odstart-odinstall/this-device-has-been-removed-from-onedrive/180406f4-2354-4c1e-b533-ce79d1d8e13c

    (haven't posted enough to post links, I guess)

    I'm going to leave my files un-sync'd for now until I'm confident this has blown over...

    Just happened on two of my machines with Windows 10. One of them says downloading all the files despite all of them being on the drive already. Sure hope there won't be duplicates (and yes, the unnecessary downloading of 60GB of data also isn't too cool either).

    Yes, as of yesterday (Oct. 7), Onedrive on my windows 7 laptop (for work) disconnected three times. I completely deleted onedrive from the computer and then reinstalled it (and downloaded the needed files for my work computer- not fun!). This morning, my Windows 10 laptop (home computer that has all the GBs of my data 100s of GBs!) just disconnected from Onedrive. What is causing this and what can I do to keep it from happening again? This is very annoying when you are trying to get work done and you have to wait on your cloud storage to do what it is designed to do!

    Yes, I have 3 Windows 10 devices and it's recurring on all of them the past 2 days. Irritating.

    Just happened to me. Windows 10. Re-setup, re-synced, and disconnected an hour later.
    Happened on all of my machines.

    Didn't happen to my systems (Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Phone 8.1) - all files are intact and synchronized. Just to be sure, I've kept an offline backup of all my important files.

    Both of my computers disconnected, but I logged back in and everything was fine. I lost my Microsoft Office 365 icons on my portable (Win10) but put them right back, too. Haven't checked my phone and tablet yes.

    You will not get duplicates. If the files are the same, nothing happens. Previously, if you modified a file, then synced, you would get two copies, one with your pc name appended to the file name. That was with Windows 8. The behavior has changed with Windows 10, not sure what happens.

    This started with me in the past week. I am seeing it on all of my Windows 10 devices. I even created a fresh new install of Windows 10 on my laptop, and it did it on there, with a plain copy of Windows 10 and all updates installed. I'm thinking a windows update might be the culprit. And of course, you are kinda forced into taking them in most cases.
