OneDrive not updating on Windows 10 mobile

Hi,

I have a OneDrive account which I use for sharing files between various devices, including a desktop still running Windows 7, a laptop running Windows 10 and a Microsoft Lumia 950 running the latest Windows 10 mobile.

The problem is with the mobile. E.g. if I create a text file on, say, Windows 7 and save it to OneDrive, I can open it on the mobile file. However, the mobile opens it read-only in Microsoft Word. If I then modify the contents on the Windows 7 machine, the update does not get synced to the mobile device - it still displays the original contents of the file, even though the file's metadata show the later last modified date and time.

It's like Word is keeping a cached version somehow, which is just plain daft!

Is this because the text file is being opened on the mobile device with Microsoft Word? I can't see how.

Any assistance gratefully received.

Mark

Try turning the phone off and on, do a battery pull or do a soft reset.

Lately I have had issues with things not saving and doing the above bar the battery pull on my L930 helped.

I admit not ideal, have a go and let us know how get on.
