    Changing OneDrive download location


    Before using OneDrive all my data files were held on a seperate partition ion E: drive. I have now stored the main folders (eg Documents, Photographs, Spreadsheets) on OneDrive and now realise that as well as offline they are held in C: Users/Chris. Can I alter it so that these continue to be held on E: rather than in C:Users/Chris?

    :)

    Downloads and OneDrive Location

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you. I have moved my Downloads folder and am moving my OneDrive folders now. It would not let me change the OneDrive location itself but was able to move the separate folder locations. Will see how this works. Thanks!

    Downloads and OneDrive Location

    Hi Andre,

    I don't really download apps from the store. I use my Surface primarily for work. Due to the nature of my work, I find myself needing to access my OneDrive files offline quite often, and let it sync once back to a good WiFi area. I just looked into the On
    Demand OneDrive feature but don't think that setting will work well for me when I am out of cell and WiFi range. Thank you though!

    Unlink OneDrive, make a new folder on E: drive, name it OneDrive. Copy everything from C:\Users\Your_Username to new OneDrive folder on E: drive. Setup OneDrive again, this time linking it to new OneDrive folder on E. drive.
