From what I recall, it's a known issue due to Microsoft changing various properties of OneDrive, including it's name (previously SkyDrive).
It "broke" the detection of it. Due to it not being a massive issue, it has not been addressed (allowing for more development time for 4.x).

A "work around" for this issue is to use the 'Program Settings -> Backup Settings -> Set a default Backup Directory' option.

This was very confusing for a while, but of course Microsoft messed things up. Classic Microsoft. haha

It's simple to fix, just pick your OneDrive folder as your backup folder.

The reason it happened was because Microsoft changed the login protocols between win7 and 8 so it would be more secure.
