    I'm new to OneDrive and badly messed it up when I first installed it. After getting help, I did finally learn how to have OneDrive also save some of my more vital to be available when offline files on my computer. Now the problem is, I have absolutely no idea where it is putting those files. It says they are both on the computer and in OneDrive. If so, WHERE are they? When I open my PC Documents folder and go to the subfiles, none of them have the files that OneDrive says are on both. Is there a way to correct this problem?

    :)

  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.
