Windows 8.1 Settings Sync not working

Hi Everyone,

I set up Windows 8.1 and activated sync settings but only the files stored in Skydrive folder and OneNote notes are syncronized, NOT the settings. I've added also the option to back up the settings on Skydrive : again I don't see my device listed on Skydrive options' webpage.

I tried many procedures found on Internet like removing devices from Skydrive, deleting windows 8 synced personal settings on Skydrive, ...

The only action I cannot do is to refresh/reset Windows on the device due to too many apps installed and configured.

Any help will be very appreciated. Thanks

Try a different Windows 8 user profile to see if sync works properly in a new profile. That would be a good initial test to do.
