    Change What OneDrive Stores

    I've used OneDrive mostly incorrectly, i guess for years. When I started, I just selected a few folders for which I wanted another backup location. Over the years, I've added additional folders, but that's the way it's still setup. I have decided I want to backup my entire UserName/Documents folder and UserName/Pictures folder. I'm afraid that if I just move the whole UserName/Documents and UserName/Pictures folder into OneDrive, I might end up with duplicates of everything that's already there. On the other hand I don't want to risk losing everything that's in OneDrive now. What would happe

  2. Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.

    Thank you for replying.

    I understand your concern and suggest you to Unlink OneDrive and run OneDrive setup
    again and check. Here is the steps:

    • Right-click the white OneDrive cloud icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar.

      (You might need to click the Show hidden icons arrow next to the notification area to see the
      OneDrive icon.)

    • Click Settings, and then click Unlink.

    • Follow the steps in the Welcome to OneDrive wizard to set up OneDrive.
    Do notify us if the issue still persists and we'll be glad to help.
