Account sync issues

Q: Account sync issues

I can't seem to get my profile to reliably sync to new devices or when I've tried clean installs on my main system. I have all settings checked to sync and the PCs are all trusted devices. Sometimes it will sync the desktop background and my profile picture, others it may sync some of my explorer settings. Sometimes it may not sync anything at all. My homegroup on any other devices also gets renamed to "winliveid_000" instead of the usual "[email protected]" I've yet to figure out why this happens as well. I've tried deleting the data and trying again, all with the same result. This has honestly all been an issue ever since I've installed Windows 8 and I'm starting to dislike the profile sync altogether. If it cannot reliably sync my data and all of it, I don't understand it's usefulness. I've also run the account troubleshooting tool, which gives a cryptic message saying "The following settings are turning sync off: Personalization." It gives no further details that I can see or look into and all settings are on. Any ideas as to what is happening? I've taken a look at Windows 8.1 and it seems that you have no choice but to initially use your Microsoft account to sign in, which is troubling. If it cannot be fixed, I may have to delete my synced profile online every time I try to reinstall my main system

Preferred Solution: Account sync issues

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Account sync issues

How many systems have you linked to your account, and how many of those are giving you this problem? I originally had three PCs connected to my account, and I've never had any problems at all. Are you starting with a Local account and then adding the MS account? What will happen is, if you add an MS account to a new system, your entire network of computers will take on the characteristics of the newest system.

I found this out, after I installed onto my 3rd PC and I wanted a different Desktop Theme. I went back to my other 8 systems, and THEY were all using that theme.

So, on all computers I share everything except for the theme. So if you set up to a new PC, you whole network of PCs will look exactly like the very last one you installed it on, unless you turn off sync for the existing PCs which is what I had to do until I had all three set up how I wanted.

Hi. I opened my 2017 .pst file in Microsft Outlook. All 11069 emails in the file are showing as "sync issues". The sync issues are coming with a couple different error messages depending on the email. Below is an example of 2. Please help! I have

Apologies in advance if this is not the right area. I was directed here by a Support Engineer in the

Microsoft Community forum. If this is not the right place, please let me know the best place to post this question.

The question presented on domain PCs after clicking 'Settings  > Change PC Settings > Accounts > Connect to a Microsoft account' is:

Which PC settings from your Microsoft account do you want to sync with your domain account?

The options are:

Start Screen
Desktop personalization
Apps (list of apps you've installed)
Passwords (apps, websites, and networks)
App Data
Language Preferences
Ease of Access
Other Windows Settings
Web browser (open tabs, history, and favorites)

What I'm looking for is more information about all these options. For example, what is synced with a domain account when the 'App Data' or 'Other Windows Settings' boxes are checked? Those are very vague descriptions, and I'm trying to figure out
what exactly is synced when these options are selected.

Hi there,

I am new to Windows 10 and hope you can help me. I am trying to set up my OneDrive account to sync across two (soon to be three) PCs and am having trouble.

I have an account with OneDrive for business through my university. I installed OneDrive on my Windows 7 laptop to sync my main bulk storage files. I logged in with my university username and began the sync no problem. Now, on my Windows 10 desktop, when I try to link OneDrive with my university account, I am told that this Microsoft account does not exist. What am I doing wrong?

Also, I want to log into my computer using a local account, but sync to my university one drive account. Is it possible to do this?

Thanks for your help!

I'm currently logging in to my PC using a local account and am aware that auto syncing occurs if I were using a Microsoft account instead.

I will be buying a new tablet and was wondering if there was a way to manually sync using a local account? It'll be just a one-time sync for me, so I just wanted to know if I can do it keeping my local account setup on my tablet or would I have to temporarily switch to a Microsoft account login?

I have a MS account in Win 8.1 which automatically logs me in.

Lately, I can only access my Hotmail and Skydrive through their respective Start Screen Apps. When I try to log on to either of them using my browser, I get an "Incorrect Password" message.

Although I didn't changed it, my password for Hotmail and Skydrive is not in sync with Win 8.1. So, is there any way for me to find out what my Win 8 password is so I can log in to my Hotmail and Skydrive accounts on the web?

A:MS account password not in sync between Win 8.1 and Hotmai

Hello DrFocus, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Sorry, but I need to ask the obvious first question. Do all of these share the exact same email address, and is indeed the same Microsoft account and not two by mistake?

While you can't find out your Microsoft password, you could reset it to hopefully have them be synced afterwards.

I don't use the mail app, but I am pretty sure you need to add the email accounts on each device before they can sync.
Logging into a device with your MS account will allow settings to sync, but not mail, until you set it up.

We have some users that work from home and their PC's are on the domain network maybe twice a year, however they VPN to work daily.
When these users do come to the office to use another PC AD rightfully force them to change Password, when they get back to the PC they have at home this password is not accepted and they have to use old password to login to PC at home.
This create discrepancy between current AD password and the domain joint PC at home that haven't been on work lan for ages.

Is there a way to get PC that mostly connect to work over VPN to sync with AD ? so that they get GPOs, AD password etc ... ?

Yes, you could turn off syncing your settings for a Microsoft account, but you'll still need to manually set back what was changed by the sync though.

I have a ASUS Windows 8.1 tablet. Everything works fine for me and seemed to be working fine for my wife?s account until she started to add some apps to her account.

Both accounts had Admin privileges. Several of her apps just wouldn?t run after installing. I worked with vendors, uninstalling and reinstalling many times without any success. The same apps installed and worked perfectly on my account. I decided to remove her account and then reinstall it and took the option to save all of her personalized data and made back-up copies of everything I could just in case.

Everything seemed to go fine and the apps now installed and work as intended but Syncing & sharing libraries from her home computer no longer works. When I try to setup syncing in her Firefox browser it asks for her login but now says she has no Firefox account.

Originally our user accounts looked something like the following in the C:\Users folders:


Now they look like:

Kathy_000.PC name (Note: after the ?.? is the actual tablet name)

I?m thinking that the ?.PC name? which has been added might be the problem. I tried to rename ?Kathy_000.PC name? to ?Kathy_000?, like it originally setup but there is no option to rename.

Any suggestions on best way to resolve this? Thks John

A:How would i Sync a Windows Live Mail account on 3 PCs?

The only free way I know of that you can do this with Windows Live Mail is to maintain a common Hotmail account or a Gmail account configured to use the imap protocols (intructions for setup included in the Gmail account settings). The way both work is that the account is kept current on the web and then that is shared and syncronized with each copy of Windows Live Mail configured to use that one web account.

I tried to dig up some info on this online, but couldn't really find anything.

Right now I am not using a Microsoft account to login to Windows 8. But I do like the idea of being able to login with one, and have settings like my browser bookmarks and history, along with other settings synced.

My question is - does anyone know how secure the Windows 8 technology is when transferring all these settings back and forth over the internet to Microsoft servers? Is it using an SSL encrypted connection? Any information about this would be good to know.

I like the idea of being able to access some of this common info from computer to computer, but not unless there is really tight security in place.

Windows ten user forever. Did the Anniversary Update. This caused about 1/2 my apps and programs to stop working correctly. Followed the (way too many) instructions at the Microsoft site. Killed the system to the point where I wiped the drive, reinstalled the original, did the Anniversary update BEFORE anything else. All is good...except for the Gmail account, which throws this error when I try to sync the account:

We're having a problem downloading messages. Make sure you have a connection (yes, I do) and your account info is correct (yes), and then try again (like 30 times or so).

I know, just use Gmail...but I'm too damned stubborn for that (which is why I had to reload my entire OS in the first place).

I have a newer HP Pavillion 23 desktop. Windows 8 Home. I prefer to use it with a local account but it bugs me that I have so much problem with the syncing if I go with an MS account and use the Metro Tiles.

I use Chrome and I am signed in all the time. The Mail tile syncs my live.com mail okay but when I go to add the gmail account it balks. I have entered the username and password for my gmail over and over. It says check what I've typed somethings wrong. I have gone through the "trusted pc" process and used the code and it reports everything is okay now, all will sync.

So I go back to the Mail tile and there's live.com, I go to Add an Account and select Google Connect and enter the ID and pass once again and it's a no go. I did get the Calendar to sync by going to the Google account in the browser and into Calendar settings and choosing Calendars and the the name of my Calendar and getting a link from that Private Address iCal url. I entered it somewhere and the Metro Calendar tile works. Although for some reason it is show old events that are not showing in the browser Calendar. I think I know what that is though, small point.

But nothing I've done gets the gmail account to be added directly to be accessed by the Mail Metro tile. Does anyone have a definitive resolve for this?

I would be so greatly indebted and thanks! Jack ":-\\

Since I bought this computer, I've had issues. I started by creating a user with my personal email address, but then thought I wanted it for work so I deleted the Microsoft account associated with that email and created another with my work email. However, I've noticed that some of the apps aren't working correctly and needed to use my personal email again. For awhile, Microsoft accounts wouldn't allow deleted accounts from coming back but it appears it's working now.
So, now I have a Microsoft account with my personal email address but the primary user on my PC is still associated with the work Microsoft account. I can't find a way to change this and it's causing problems since that email doesn't exist anymore. Is there any way to change the Microsoft account that's associated with a single user?
The only other thing I could think of would be to create a new user, promote to admin, and swap everything over manually before completely removing the user associated with my old work email. I tried this, but when attempting to log into the new user it says "cannot login, please visit accounts.live.com to fix the issue". However, whenever I go there and log into the new users account, there's no instruction on what to do or any indication that there's something wrong.
So, I need to be able to do one of two things:
1) Switch the Microsoft account associated with the primary user on this PC or,
2) Find out how to log into the new user's account without any i... Read more

My Windows Live account refuses to synch with my Mail, Calender & People apps in Metro using Release Preview. I keep getting an error message stating that my [email protected] account is not available. My Facebook, Twitter, Linked In & Google Mail accounts synch without a hitch. My Windows Live account synchs no problem on my Windows Phone, which has Mango installed. I can also access my Windows Live account on my browsers [IE, Opera, Firefox]. Why will it not synch in Windows 8 when it previously did?

Removing the account completely and signing in to the app again does not solve the problem. It makes no difference if I log in using either my Windows Live account or my local account to sign in to Windows 8.

Here's the message I get in top left hand corner of my screen. It says, "[email protected] is not available".

Sync Window Live Mail client & Ipad/iphone calendar

I have been asked to setup a calendar synchronisation between a Windows Livemail client, and iphone and ipad

They are already using WLM client on PC connected to thier own domain for email, which has NO calendar sync possible , so i cannot change the client software

So i decided the easiest thing was to create a live mail account (outlook.com) and use that to sync all the calendars

Outlook.com account (set up specially for this sync) and synced from the windows live mail client to the outlook.com calendar and that all worked very well
WLM Client to ipad and iphone all worked

i do however have an issue

I setup the ipad and iphone using the hotmail option - I possibly should have chosen the exchange option

The issue an event created on the ipad or iphone calendar event is not synced back to the outlook.com / WLM calendar ,but they do sync with each other all OK

WLM ==> oulook.com === > ipad ==> iphone
all work that way

ipad ==> iphone OR iphone ==> ipad
all work ok

iphone/ipad created event == Does NOT update ==> wlm/outlook.com

if i setup an event in the WLM calendar, which syncs to all devices, I can then delete the event via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/outlook.com calendars - so the ipad/iphone is talking back to the outlook.com calendar for a delete action.

so what does not work is just that

set the account up for just calendar

Hello all,
So my company uses OneNote for many things. We have a user that has it one his desktop computer and his iPad. I'm not sure how long it hasn't been working correctly for him but he says that it's not syncing at all for him anymore. I took a look at it to see if I could figure it out. His desktop seems fine, however, his iPad reveals a message on the top in a yellow bar underneath the toolbars: "Merge Conflict - We couldn't merge some changes. To review conflicts, use OneNote on your computer or OneNote online."
I had him sign out of OneNote on his desktop and on his iPad and log back in (both, to ensure he is using the same account for both, and to see if that fixes the issue). It didn't work.
He is using Office 2016. If you need more information, let me know.

I can't get my iPhone to properly sync with iTunes under Windows 7 RC 7127.

The iPhone is recognized by the system and its recognized by iTunes, but when I click on sync it starts with iPhone backup first and it gets about 3/4 of the way and just sits there. I can then cancel the sync on the iPhone and try again and get the same problem. So because it never backs up, it never syncs.

I had similar issues with Windows 7 RC 7100 and after I restarted the computer it worked. But with 7127 I can't get it to work at all.

Anyone else have any issues?

Not here...my iPhone 3G syncs fine with 7127 and now 7137. My only gripe is that it will not open iTunes and sync automatically when I plug the phone in...it used to in Vista...but not too much of a hassle to do it manually I guess.

I have a user who has a bunch of files that seem to delete themselves off of the server.

The user has a drive mapped to the server, and initially the "My Documents" folder was redirected to this network share (his home drive).

The redirection was based on group policy, but the user's computer has been moved from the "sync" OU to a "non-sync" OU, so he should not be syncronizing his files any longer.

He is not able to see his files on the server from multiple machines (which are all in the "non-sync" OU).

The files ARE on the server, so it's not like they are actually deleted. It's just that the user cannot see them. Also, he created a new file on the network share from another computer, and that file is still visible on the server from his machine.

Please let me know if there's anything that can be done so this user can access his files again!

Thank you!!!

I'm not sure how long it hasn't been working correctly for him but he says that it's not syncing at all for him anymore. I took a look at it to see if I could figure it out. His desktop seems fine, however, his iPad reveals a message on the top in a yellow bar underneath the toolbars: "Merge Conflict - We couldn't merge some changes. To review conflicts, use OneNote on your computer or OneNote online."
I had him sign out of OneNote on his desktop and on his iPad and log back in (both, to ensure he is using the same account for both, and to see if that fixes the issue). It didn't work.
He is using Office 2016. If you need more information, let me know.

hi i have recently had a problem with the voice sync being out when i recode video with nero, it does not happen with all video formats i choose to re-code but nor does it happen to specific types. for example i have recoded avi files with no voice sync issues and i have recoded other avi files and the sync can be out by upto 6 seconds. i am at my wits end, please can someone suggest some sort of solution.

p.s. i am using nero specifically because i need to create a menu at the start of the disc, so using winavi for instance would not be a viable alternative

Thanx in advance

Have a weird situation develop over the last few days.
When using YouTube or TVCatchup the sound is consistently early with reference to the picture. This started off as an occasional thing but is now becoming "the norm".
I can sometimes get the right sync but this entails rebooting the PC. I haven't installed any new software on the machine recently apart from the last round of Microsoft Updates and the Chrome update. Just to make sure it was nothing to do with the Chrome update I uninstalled Chrome completely using Revo Unistaller and re-installed with no change to the problem.
Just for the record I'm running Windows 7 32bit Ultimate on a Dell Dimension E520 with a 3month old nvidea Geforce GT430 graphics card. I've even re-installed the nVidea driver.
Any ideas anyone?

Mobile 6.0

Sometimes it does sync but frequently it won't.
One time I will plug in and it will sync and stay connected and continue syncing as long as necessary just like I assume it is supposed to.
Other times there is some initialization but no connection.
Sometimes it will disconnect after some time of syncing activity.
I have resorted to keeping an icon on my desktop to reinstall sync center and that will frequently initiate a sync but not always.
If I reboot the laptop the PDA is recognized but only as an external drive. Then when I do the Sync Center reinstall it will usually initialize and complete the sync.
I have run the entire gambit of rebooting the laptop, rebooting the PDA, plugging and unplugging, trying different USB ports and cables. Sometimes it works but a most of the time I just keep trying different things until I get a sync. I have occasionally considered trying bluetooth just to see if it would make any difference.

We have a new employee that wants to use her laptop, which is fine. It is a Dell with XP pro. At her former job she was synchronizing her offline files with their Win 2003 server.

I have set it up to work on our network and to synchronize offline files with our Win 2003 server. All this is working great, but it still attempts to synchronize with the old server.

I looked on line and did not find any advice on how to make it forget the old server. Any thoughts? It is working at the moment, but really annoying.

My buddy has a Sylvania mp3 model# smpk8854b. He came to me because when he plugs it in, it his computer can't even recognize that it's plugged in, he said he has tried on 3 other computers. So here I am with the same issue, my computer is uptodate on everything I can think of and it still wont do anything. I googled around and this problem seems to be happening alot, but with little variations, I downloaded the virtual CD that was suppose to come with it and as far as I can tell its junk as well, apparantly, a mp3 player that came out 2 years ago uses win98 material.

Anyway, any and all help is welcomed and I thanks in advance, theres a free dinner in it for me if I can get it working! lol

My other half got a Bush PVR (BUPVR160F1) a year or so ago from Argos and recently the hard drive failed completely. It didn't power-up at all, so I ordered a 30 replacement from Amazon with a similar/better spec. It appears to record programs ok, however on playback it works for a while and then there's a 'juddering' of picture and sound after which the sound is out-of-sync with the picture. Stopping and then continuing playback temporarily fixes it. I could format the drive in the PVR again, although I already did that as part of the installation. The old drive is a WD1600AVBB, and the new drive is http://www.amazon.co.uk/Generic-Hard-Disk-Drive-160GB/dp/tech-data/B000OUI8OQ/ref=de_a_smtd which I thought had similar/better specs so was optimistic that it would work.
(The old drive should have a 3-yr warranty but I haven't kept the Argos receipt so doubt they'll help.)
Any help gratefully received guys.
