    Btw still waiting for the highly intelligent WAPOZ to reply.
    Wait, you actually don't understand why wapoz had a go at you?

    Your title: "OneDrive" is incompatible with Windows 8.1, hilarious
    wapoz: Op makes a fool of himself, hilarious.
    Your response: Can you remote in to your 8.1 PC from a laptop through SkyDrive?

    Due to your desire to sensationalise your actual problem, you've ended up completely off base. Here is what you said: OneDrive is incompatible and broken. Here is the reality: a feature was removed and you are experiencing issues with sync. That first point is irrelevant to your thread title because SkyDrive/OneDrive is fundamentally a cloud storage solution, not remote file access software. The second point is an issue that you will encounter with all comparable services, because cloud synchronisation is hard and no one does it perfectly.

    Enjoy your iPhone. I hear iCloud syncing is fantastic, just like Apple's non-existent cloud storage solution with remote file access.

    In this thread:

    EchoOne30 opined about how onedrive no longer works correctly in 8.1.

    He is correct. It does not work as sky/onedrive works on pre- 8.1 computers.

    The key information is he upgraded the computer. (Reading for comprehension was supposed to be learned in second grade.)

    8.1 onedrive integration is ONLY available when the local computer is used as a Microsoft owned device: that is a LOCAL user is not allowed access to the onedrive folders. ONLY MS accounts have such access. Making the computer primarily a MS network client.

    Most of the responders in the thread obviously are not upgraders. And way probably not business users.

    This change to onedrive's functionality means I will be changing clients away from onedrive to dropbox, fastmail.fm,.... to retain reasonable control of their LOCAL computers.

    A big step backwards on this one.

    Same kind on stupidity: Outlook 2013 is REQUIRED to download all message bodies, attachements, and spam crap, when using IMAP. The standard default setting for IMAP does not in anyway increase a user's happiness. Just dumb.

    Some one posts a message that, "It is raining and cloudy here," and the main response is "IT'S NOT RAINING HERE!!!"
