OneDrive Issues with Office 365


Windows 10 was reporting my OneDrive client as being the most current but when I checked the version of groove.exe, it was very out of date. Since this was an Office 365 installation, I couldn’t uninstall OneDrive for Business. So I needed a way to manually uninstall it.



To completely uninstall OneDrive:

  1. Open Command Prompt in Administrator mode: Right-click on the Windows icon in the taskbar and select Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. Type in taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe to terminate any OneDrive processes and hit Enter.
  3. Then type in either %SystemRoot%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall if you’re using 32-bit Windows 10 or %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall if you’re using 64-bit Windows 10 and hit Enter.

No confirmation dialog appears at all as it’s a silent uninstall. To reinstall it with the same version, go to the same path and run OneDrive.
