Why can't I see updated files in my OneDrive folder(s)?

Someone who has shared access to a folder has updated one or more files but they are not appearing on my desktop or device!


This usually means a Syncronisation Problem.

This could either mean that

  • perhaps the other person's changes have not yet synched,
  • or your synchronisation has a problem.
  • or the folder or file is very large and time is needed to update things at either end.


Check the OneDrive Folder online, i.e.. via a Browser.

If the files have been updated ONLINE, then the issue is probably with your synchronisation.
