One (or more) if your files is stuck on the “Processing changes” icon.
This may be because you still have that file open. When you close the file, the “Processing changes” icon should go away. If it does not, please try rebooting your computer. If that does not resolve it, please contact HDF.
My OneDrive icon in my task bar is stuck on “Processing changes”.
When you first turn on your computer, it will show that symbol for a while, as it goes through all of the files on the server and compares them to your copies. It should revert to the normal icon after a while. If it does not, please try rebooting your computer. If that does not resolve it, please contact HDF.
Error: “Sorry, we couldn’t find <file name>. Is it possible it was moved, renamed or deleted?”
This misdirecting error message can occur when you are trying to open or move a synced file in your OneDrive folder. It means that the full path of your OneDrive file is too long. You will need to move the file to a folder higher up in the folder structure, or copy the file temporarily to another location (i.e. your desktop).
