BC 4.2.10 Pro or higher is requireed for OneDrive for Business/Office 365.  If your OneDrive email is associated with both a Personal and Business account, it may be necessary to open your Default Web Browser, navigate to and Log Out. After logging out in your Browser, reopen BC4 and attempt to create a new OneDrive Profile. If prompted to select a preexisting account, click the menu button to Forget, and re-enter your email credentials from scratch.

OneDrive profiles don't preserve modified timestamps when copying files.  Copied files are timestamped with the time of the copy.  To workaround the issue, copy the timestamp from the OneDrive file back to the local file using the Actions | Touch command.
