Which windows theme are you using ?
You might see if there's a difference switching to a aero theme ?
Cheers.

Hi,
That's what it looked like,
Did you switch to an aero theme and boot to test ?
I don't have Onedrive desktop to test with possibly GregRocker will appear and compare his icon,
Cheers.

Mine look the same. I think it reverses (appears white) if its on a dark background. Otherwise its blue. But as suggested it could change with some themes.

IMO Classic is ugly. Windows 7 is way too beautiful to waste on Classic Soviet-era-file-cabinet theme.

Thank for both replys. I tried other themes, the icon stayed white.

Probably because the task bar is deemed to be dark, so it reverses on there.

A simple explanation:

There are two kind of OneDrives, the normal one you get free with each Microsoft email account (7 GB), and the OneDrive for Business (former SkyDrive Pro) you get with Office 365 Business edition subscriptions (25 GB per each user included in subscription).

Both show by default a blue icon in Explorer, in Notification area the basic OneDrive has a white icon and the OneDrive for Business a blue one. See screenshot below, #1 = OneDrive and #2 = OneDrive for Business.
