  1. Executable Program within a Saved Folder on OneDrive


    I have a folder with years of scanned documents. The folder has an executable program that searches and finds requested pages or documents. I use window 10 operating system. The folder is approx. 876MB


    My question: Can I save the Folder to OneDrive and then open it and run the Executable program to search for saved pages or documents inside that folder?

    :)

  2. Utilities that I run can no longer automatically save files to my OneDrive

    Hi Alan,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    To set OneDrive as your default location to save your documents and files, follow the below steps.

    1. Click on the OneDrive icon from the Taskbar area > Click on the menu button (three-dots) on the top-right corner > Click on
      Settings > Go to the Auto Save tab.
    2. Using the drop-down menu, select OneDrive for
      Desktop
      , Documents, and Pictures and click on
      OK.
    3. Once you complete the above steps, restart the computer once and try saving the files generated from utilities and check if it is saving in
      C:\Users\myname\OneDrive\Documents folder.

    If you are still facing the same issue, then I suggest you to contact OneDrive support for further assistance on this issue by following the below steps.

    OneDrive "only" folders on Windows Phone 8 vs OneDrive online.

    Hi tribexx,

    Thanks for following up with detailed steps.

    After the "Saved pictures from SkyDrive" gets generated, you can find them from the OneDrive.

    • Launch OneDrive from app list
    • You will find the "Saved Pictures" from "files pivot" (root level) and/or under "Pictures" folder
    • Tap into "Saved Pictures" from OneDrive app, you can (multiple) delete files or perform other operations from there. For multiple delete
      • Tap on "select"
      • Multiple selection of files you want to delete
      • Tap on delete
      • And confirm

      You can also try to use the "search" from app bar (at the bottom of screen) to search "Saved pictures". If you still cannot find the "Saved pictures", please let us know.

      Thank you.

    • Click: Unlink this PC
    2. Delete the C:\Users\XXXX\OneDrive folder

    3. Create a new folder (target folder) for OneDrive contents, e.g. D:\OneDrive

    4. Create Directory Junction for the new folder

    • In the search area of the taskbar type CMD and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter
    • In the command window type
    mklink /J C:\Users\XXXX\OneDrive D:\OneDrive
