Syncing Errors

There may be some issues with some documents you may try and migrate from your Z: Drive to OneDrive. A red circle with an 'X' will pop up along with a message across the top that says "Some items can't be synced, click for more info". If a file cannot sync for any reason, OneDrive will tell you why and a possible resolution to the issue. If you have any questions about sync errors, please contact the UCCS OIT Service Desk
