  1. Duplicate File Copies in OneDrive


    When I installed OneDrive, I found that I have hundreds of duplicate files ending in "- Copy.*" These occur in the original folders and also the OneDrive folders. How do I delete all of the copies? Will this continue to occur?

    :)

  2. onedrive duplicating my folders...

    Hi.

    Again, onedrive is going crazy and is duplicating my main folder, full of subfolders. It's locking me out of all my files. I have windows 10, Office 365 home. I paused synch at the moment before I have 1000 copy of my folder, which I can't open anyway!
    Please don't ask me any question that will further delay the repair. Simply give me a step by step solution and then improve onedrive so this won't happen again to so many of us. I suggest you also add "onedrive" in the list of "Windows Topics" below since
    thousands of users have issues with it.

    Thanks

    Michel

    OneDrive Duplication of files

    Hi,

    Im'using Onedrive for years without mistake before.

    Since some days, I encounter a big problem with OneDrive.

    I manage a lot of pictures using the keywords.

    Since few days, each files with modified keyword are duplicated into the Onedrive folder into my computer.

    If I delete this duplicated files, OneDrive made a new copy !

    OneDrive give the message that it cannot merge the file and duplicate it.

    I made an re-init of Onedrive without success.

    Could I obtain help from the Community here ?

    Please help me.

    Thanks for alll response.

    Regards

  4. Duplicate File Copies in OneDrive

    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.
