    This is a subject that Microsoft has really little addressed.

    After searching for the error, I found that it is linked to Bitlocker. Then I found this on a forum, which solved the problem with the OneDrive Personal Vault for the error 0x8031005b.

    Open Policy settings:

    • Go to “Local Computer Policy > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > BitLocker Drive Encryption > Operating System Drives”
    • Select the following Item: “Require additional authentication at startup”

    Local Group Policy Editor

    • Change the following:
    • Change it to “Enabled”
    • Uncheck “Allow BitLocker without a compatible TPM”
    • Change “Configure TPM startup” to “Do not allow TPM”
    • Change “Configure TPM startup PIN” to “Require startup PIN with TPM”
    • Change “Configure TPM startup key” to “Do not allow startup key with TPM”
    • Change “Configure TPM startup key and PIN” to “Do not allow startup key and PIN with TPM”
    • Click “Apply” and “OK”

    For me it's solved so far, but the forum still mentions some more steps you can try too:

    Open regedit

    • Find key: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\FVE
    • Export for backup and delete it.
    • Open Terminal and execute:
    gpupdate /force /target:computer
    • To encrypt the drive F:
    manage-bde -on f: -rp

    Result should be something like: BitLocker Drive Encryption: Configuration Tool version 10.0.19041
