Is it possible to make onedrive work on windows 7 or 8.1 in 2024?

Post by WC54 »

When installing onedrive on windows 7 or 8.1, you will be greeted with an error message saying that onedrive has been discountinued on 7/8.1. Is there any way to bypass this annoying message? Logging in with an business account still works (i think, onedrive is called "Onedrive for business" on the start menu). Maybe its possible to trick onedrive into thinking that a regular personal microsoft account is a business account. Or using a program that makes onedrive thinking that it is being used on windows 10.

Dropbox does still work, but i have more important files on onedrive.

Not sure about 7, but on 8.1 you can map your OneDrive as a network drive.

I don't like Windows 10/11. I like (best to 4th best): 7, 8.1, Vista, and XP.
Cars I like: Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Aura, Tata Tiago, Suzuki Dzire, and Suzuki Ciaz
