What causes Error 0x800710FE in Windows?

As we have said, there are several causes for Error 0x800710FE. Some of them are human actions (motivated by the user) and others are caused by the machine after an unexpected failure.

Check out the main reasons for this error below.

Office file synchronization is not enabled by default

If Office file synchronization is not enabled, this could be the reason for Error 0x800710FE.

According to Microsoft, synchronization ensures that changes made to a file are reconciled and copies reflect recent changes. In other words, when it is not enabled, files do not synchronize automatically.

When copying files from a network

It is also common for the error to appear when someone tries to copy files from a network. Normally, you need administrator permission to copy them, so unauthorized people can cause the error message to appear.

The user has no editing control over the file or program

Similarly, Error 0x800710FE can arise when the user does not have control to edit a file or program. This problem is also related to the permissions to edit them, as there is usually an administrator.

There are corrupted, damaged or missing files

Files can also cause the error to appear. It’s possible that when you try to copy a document, it’s corrupted, missing or damaged and so you can’t complete the desired action.

The system is infected with malware

When we talk about “malware” we are referring to malicious software that can cause damage. In a moment of carelessness, it may have penetrated the system and become one of the reasons for the errors that appear on your machine.
