This Onedrive error code may also state “the cloud file provider exited unexpectedly, when trying to access files of OneDrive”. Today I am going to show you a step by step easy fix that will resolve the 0x80070194 error code.

We need to temporarily turn off the files on demand feature.

Step 1.) Look for the Onedrive icon at the bottom right of your windows taskbar. Right click the icon and select settings.

Step 2.) Click the first tab which is “settings” and then scroll the the bottom where it says “save space and download files as you use them”. Be sure to unselect this setting.

Step 3.) Once you have selected ok, please wait 5 seconds and then restart Onedrive. You can do this by right clicking the onedrive icon and selecting “close Onedrive”.

Step 4.) If the problem persists then press the windows + R key on the keyboard which should bring up a dialog box.
