Onedrive continually downloads files (or reports files downloaded)

I installed one drive and used it to download a folder about a week ago. Every two hours or so it fills up the reports bar to tell me the files have been downloaded - again. I don't think it's actually downloading the files just reporting them.

I have tried removing Onedrive and moved the folder on Onedrive so that it wouldn't be able to find it in the same place (the reason I think for certain it is not downloading the file every time). It's mostly just annoying to have to clear a list of 20 items every two hours. I have tried restarting the device as well - this, sadly, does not help.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions for this.

I have the same issue. An android app failed to download an update and since there I repeatly got the notification "download failed" I tried everything expect uninstalling because I would loose all data...

Exactly the same problem... have seen it mentioned elsewhere on here. The only solution was to completely reset the device and avoid Onedrive, but I agreed this isn't a solution.

Thanks for the responses. This is a vexing issue, to be sure. Was it the same app for you drummer12 or a different one. If it was a different one then the issue would appear to be with the way apps are passing messages to the notification queue. I was still getting them when onedrive was uninstalled so it must be happening within the OS, I guess.

I've got the same problem with 'Threema' I think it's related to the android layer. I don't really mind because it's only one notification and I don't want to backup and resstore everything but maybe uninstalling Android support, reboot and reinstalling may help...

Cool well thanks for the help. I had hoped that leaving it for a while someone might know a workaround. However it appears that I can't avoid a reinstall. Oh well. Hopefully some bright spark will be able to figure it out in time.

I've got the same problem some time ago but after I tapped notifications they cleared up and never appeared again so please try if you still bothered by them.
