I don't have permission to my own OneDrive files?

Csomi2006 1 Reputation point

Hi! I had some issues with OneDrive lately. So I have an organization with only one account in it, which is the admin ofc. I signed in with this account every time and I edited without a problem. But since a few days it says ,,I don’t have permission.” and ,,I should contact the admin.” But I am the admin. And I can’t edit my files.
Did anyone have a problem like that before?

    Hi @Csomi2006 ,
    According to your description, the exact cause of the problem cannot be determined at this time. There is one solution for you:
    We recommend that you create another account in the Microsoft 365 admin center. Then click on the account, and on the account interface, give the account global administrator rights through the Manage roles.

    Then use the new account to enter the Microsoft 365 admin center,
    Click your old account, and in the OneDrive interface, click the Create a file link.
    Access the user's OneDrive as a secondary administrator by clicking the hyperlink to open OneDrive in a browser.

    Well, it looks like I don't have the admin rights. But I'm the only account in the organization... 240620-kep-2022-09-13-165827562.png
