OneDrive Blocked by firewall after Windows 10 upgrade

Hi,

Since the update to Windows 10, MS OneDrive sync is being blocked by Norton Internet Security firewall. If I disable the firewall, OneDrive sync works perfectly. As soon as I turn on the firewall, it doesn't sync. I checked the firewall rules and there are two rules related to OneDrive; one to allow OneDrive.exe and the other to allow OneDriveSetup.exe. Any suggestions to fix this issue?? Thank you.

Hello Aladdin. I had a similar problem a few day ago. This sorted it for me:

If you're still having the problem why not try it?

Thank you Taffy. I finally figured out what was the problem. Some of Microsoft's background data collection tasks were blocked by the firewall and that caused OnDrive sync and other features to stop. I gave permission to all Microsoft background tasks and everything started working. Once again, thank you for your reply.

Hello

Perhaps a Firewall reset might have fixed the issue also.

Thanks.

Hello Aladdin 

I have the same problem .what do you mean by Microsoft's Background where I can find this title?

I check the Norton Firewall setting nothing under the name of Microsoft's background data collection,
