14 tips to help you fix OneDrive sync problems on Windows 10

8. How to fix sync problems with OneDrive checking available storage

Although your device may have a lot of space available, if your OneDrive account is running out of space, files will stop syncing to the cloud.

Usually, to fix this problem, if you're using the free version of OneDrive, you can upgrade to the 1TB option getting an Office 365 subscription. Or you can delete files that you don't need to make room to resolve the syncing problem.

To check your OneDrive storage, use these steps:

  1. Click the OneDrive button in the bottom-right corner.
  2. Click the More option.
  3. Click the Settings option.
