And it is like any problem: I’m not alone, there are many people which struggle with the same issue. It seems that so many of you have got trouble that Apple released a support document: After you upgrade to Windows 8, the iCloud Control Panel 2.0 requires you to re-enter your password. When you open Outlook 2007 or 2010, you can still see your iCloud folders, but you may also see an alert message:
“The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store could not be opened.”
You will need to re-sync the iCloud data file. To re-sync the iCloud data file, follow the instructions below:
- Close Outlook.
- Click the Windows Start button, and then choose Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety > Mail.
- Select Data Files.
- Select iCloud from the list of accounts. Click the Settings button. Click Close.
- Open Outlook to confirm that your iCloud folders are now available.
But there is a mistake in number 2. The correct choice is Control Panel > Mail > User Accounts! I did it like it was decribed but it didn’t worked for me. Reinstalling iCloud 2.0 didn’t solved the problem, too.
But installing the Office 365 Home Premium Preview (Update: Office 365 is already out now! Bonus: Getting Unlimited OneDrive Cloud Storage With Office 365) works perfectly with iCloud! I’ve got my iCloud emails, contacts and tasks. But you should keep in mind that the Office Preview is only for a limited time till the final version is released (60 days overlapping time), after that all your data will be transformed into read-only modus.
Stay tuned! 😉
