Windows 10 and KB5018410 Microsoft announces a OneDrive bug

Microsoft confirms that its KB5018410 update causes a bug in Windows 10. It affects the OneDrive service.

It is not uncommon for a cumulative update to be accompanied by an error. However, it is interesting to note that for two years Microsoft has significantly reduced the presence of major errors. However, “occasional” errors are still possible from time to time.

This week, a new issue with the KB5018410 update has been confirmed. Targeting the Windows 10 operating system, it is the source of a problem with the OneDrive service. The application is closed without reason or explanation. All versions of Windows 10 affected by this update are affected, including 20H2, 21H1, 21H2, and 22H2 (all sharing the same cumulative update).

Redmond explains that this issue affects OneDrive and OneDrive for Business with various errors, including sync malfunctions.

The company explained

After installing KB5018410 or newer updates, OneDrive may quit unexpectedly and an error may appear when you try to do the following:

  • Sign out or unlink your account in the Microsoft OneDrive sync app;
  • Unlink sites or folders from syncing to your device from Microsoft SharePoint or Microsoft Teams sites;
  • Uninstalling the OneDrive sync app may fail.

An investigation is currently underway. Microsoft promises a fix, but no timeline is advanced. Given the nature of the bug, it is likely that this issue will find a solution in the coming days.

These issues may affect OneDrive and OneDrive for Business. We are working on a solution and estimate that a solution will be available in the coming week.
