OneDrive for business hang, high CPU, and doesn’t sync

Hello,

Some of you maybe use OneDrive for Business and have some sync issues ? High CPU load, sync errors, etc… If you browse the internet with Bing, you surely found a solution. A manual solution. Hereunder the PowerShell version of it :

Stop-Process -Name "groove" -Force
Stop-Process -Name "msosync" -Force
Stop-Process -Name "msouc" -Force
Stop-Process -Name "winword" -Force
Stop-Process -Name "excel" -Force
Stop-Process -Name "powerpnt" -Force
Remove-Item -Path "$env:USERPROFILEAppDataLocalMicrosoftOfficeSpw" -Recurse
Remove-Item -Path "$env:USERPROFILEAppDataLocalMicrosoftOffice16.0OfficeFileCache" -Recurse

Note : Be careful, you’ll need to resync all your SharePoint libraries.

Note : It works with other version of OneDrive, you just need to change the version number in the path :

  • OneDrive 2013 : 15.0
  • OneDrive 2016 : 16.0
