I have a simple microsoft outlook.com account (not O365 or onedrive for business) that comes with 15GB of storage using the OneDrive service. On laptop A, I can map a network drive z: to the onedrive address and access my files freely. Its working 100% and never lets me down. On laptop B, I cant do it at all. When I step through the map network drive wizard, I keep getting prompted for credentials which never work. I have set both laptops up in exactly the same way. Both have windows 8.1 and are signing on with the same microsoft ID.
So, I tried accessing onedrive through a web browser on laptop B. I opened IE 11 and logged on to my account. I can read my email and launch the online apps. But when I select the onedrive app I get a login screen again. I enter my credentials and browser refreshes the page a few times and then tells me that "something went wrong". However - it works when I use Chrome as the browser.
If I open an admin cmd prompt and net use z: "onedrive addres plus ID" I get access denied. I have reset the IE setttings to default, and even removed and re-installed it, but still get the same result. I've cleaned out the temp folders and have also tried accessing a completely different onedrive account but I still get the same results.
At this point it looks like something on laptop B has got twisted. Perhaps an expired session token or something.
Anyone got any ideas?
