"Incorrect account type for OneDrive detected (personal)" displayed when viewing Status in FYI


When I display my Status page (refer to Status in Individual Settings and Status) next to the OneDrive State this displays the following message.

  • Incorrect account type for OneDrive detected (personal)

This error can impact the user's ability to use various FYI functionality, for example, filing emails from Outlook.


This could have been caused if you have changed your OneDrive to a Business status instead of Personal and you need to force a complete reload of your credentials.
