    Free or paid alternatives to OneDrive


    Hi all,


    When I was traveling all the time due to work I started using One Drive as the place to store all of my personal documents and files due to the fact that I use my personal MS account to sign into all of my desktop and laptop devices.

    I have recently stopped traveling and have settled down and am living in one location for the first time in over 20 years.

    I don't trust Microsoft as far as I can throw them so I want to find a viable (free or paid, both will get looked at) alternative online storage option for my files. I realize I can use a portable HDD but I'd prefer something online as I said.


    Thanks in advance for any and all helpful replies.

  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.

    Hi,

    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.

      OneDrive icon.)

    • Click Settings, and then click Unlink.

    • Follow the steps in the Welcome to OneDrive wizard to set up OneDrive.
