  1. Get my files OFF of OneDrive!!!


    Hi,


    I've been trying to move my files between harddrives and every time I move something, OneDrive has to sync all over again. I want to stop the syncing.


    This led me to the steps to "stop backing up" in OneDrive but it seems that this keeps everything on onedrive and removes it from my PC. That is NOT what I want.


    Is there no way to get my files back from OneDrive?

    :)

  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.

    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.
