  1. [HELP] OneDrive won't backup "Important PC Folders"


    I have two laptops which I would like to sync my Documents/Pictures between. Both laptops are running Windows 10 Pro 21H1 - 19043.1110 and the same version of OneDrive 21.119.0613.0001 as can be seen in the screenshots. However, on one of the laptops I have the option to backup my "Important PC Folders" whereas the other one doesn't. It also seems that the one that does have this option also shows a OneDrive Device ID on the about page and the other doesn't. I don't know if that is relevant or not. How can I get the backup option on the other laptop? I have included the images of the backu

    Move the OneDrive Folder

    Move the OneDrive Folder in Windows 10

    When you set up OneDrive to sync with your computer, a folder C:\Users\XXXX\OneDrive will be created to store the contents. XXXX denotes your username. To move this folder to another location follow these simple steps:

    1. Unlink OneDrive from your PC:

    • Go to the taskbar notification area
    • Right-click on the OneDrive icon
    • Select settings
    • 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

    adjusting it to your specific username and selection of the target folder

    5. Link again OneDrive to your PC using the OneDrive icon in the taskbar notification area
