How do I reset OneDrive for MAC?

To reset OneDrive on a Mac

  1. Quit OneDrive. (Select the cloud icon in the top tray, then select Settings > Quit OneDrive.)
  2. Find OneDrive in your Applications folder.
  3. Right-click OneDrive and select Show Package Contents.
  4. Browse to the Contents > Resources folder.
  5. Double-click ResetOneDriveApp.command (or ResetOneDriveAppStandalone.command, if you're using the standalone app).
  6. Start OneDrive and finish the setup process.


  • When choosing location, remember to select the previous OneDrive syncing location. This means your files won’t be downloaded again if they haven’t changed.

  • If you had chosen to sync only some folders before the reset, you will need to do that again once sync has completed. 

  • You will need to complete this for your personal OneDrive and OneDrive for work or school.

  • Make sure you're using an updated version of the OneDrive app. Some older versions of the app don't have the reset commands. In that case, drag your old app to the Trash and then install the latest OneDrive app.
