Cause of Error 0x80270113, Photos won’t Pull Up:

Since OneDrive can save and retrieve a user’s data within a Microsoft Account, problems may arise during synchronization with the server. On the other hand, as a standalone Windows desktop app, OneDrive might encounter some registry issues.

Solutions to Fix Error 0x80270113, Photos won’t Pull Up:

Method 1: Fixing by Resetting OneDrive

If you are using Windows 8 or 8.1:

 There is an easy fix for this problem if you are using the older versions of Windows i.e. Windows 8/ 8.1. Microsoft has a standalone OneDrive Troubleshooter that lets you fix any kind of issue automatically. Follow the steps below.

  1. Firstly, you need to download the OneDrive Troubleshooter from Microsoft’s website. Click on this link to download the file. After it has been downloaded, double-click on it to run the dedicated troubleshooter.
  2. You will see two buttons including the one labeled as Reset OneDrive. Click on this button and let the troubleshooter find and fix the issues. It will re-sync all the files with the server and will take a while depending on your connection speed and the amount of data.

If You are Using Windows 10:

Since the OneDrive troubleshooter doesn’t work with Windows 10, you will need to perform the troubleshooting manually.

  1. Press Win + R, then paste the following command into the Run window, and press Enter.

%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset

  1. Ensure that the OneDrive icon (cloud shaped), located in the notification area, disappears and reappears within 1-5 minutes. If it doesn’t, open the Run window again and paste the command mentioned below.


Hopefully, this solution will fix the issue.

Method 2: Fixing by Running SFC Scan

Alternatively, you can perform a quick scan of your PC using the System File Checker Scan utility offered by Microsoft. It scans all of the corrupted files and folders and fixes them automatically. For this purpose, we have a detailed guide on how to run sfc scan in Windows.
