    OneDrive and local account - get rid of most folders showing


    I use4 a local account, no MSA. I want to use OneDrive as a repository that automatically syncs files I place there with the Microsoft Cloud so I can access those files and folders from other computers.

    Right now, after a Clean Install, OneDrive has a lot of folders I don't wnat there, so how do I get rid of most of them?
