‘Error 0x80270113’ While trying to open photos on OneDrive [Fixed]

Microsoft integrated its latest online cloud service called OneDrive in Windows 8 and it still continues in Windows 10. OneDrive helps to store files inside your Microsoft Account that can be pulled anywhere whether you are accessing them with computer, tablet or smartphone.

While trying to open photos in OneDrive’s pictures folder, a strange error i.e. photos won’t pull up, has been experienced by some users along with a conventional Windows error 0x80270113. This error clearly dictates that certain photos can’t be pulled from OneDrive. However, other files present inside the OneDrive folders are easily accessible.

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

As OneDrive is able to save and retrieve user’s data inside Microsoft Account, problems can arise while synchronizing with the server. One the other hand, being a standalone Windows desktop app, OneDrive can come up with 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. At first, you need to download OneDrive Troubleshooter from Microsoft’s Website. Click this link to download the file and after it is downloaded, double click over 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:

As OneDrive troubleshooter doesn’t work with Windows 10, you need to do it manually.

  1. Press Win + R and paste the following command inside the Run window followed by the Enter

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

  1. Make it sure that the OneDrive icon (cloud shaped) located inside 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.
