Onedrive does not run. It does not show up in the system tray nor in task manager. Reinstalling does not help and neither does deleting every single related file.

Check if the following registry key is present and set to 0. If set to 1: there's your problem. Just change the value and it should work right away, without reboot.

Or run the following Powershell command in an elevated shell:

PowerShell:
1
Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive' -Name DisableFileSyncNGSC -Value 0



If the key doesn't exist it is equal to 0 in practice.
