    How do I remove one drive?


    I have legit just re-imaged my system, meaning wiped the hard drive, used installation media to reinstall windows etc etc when I was etting it up i explicitly asked windows when i got the opportunity through one of the many prompts that comes up through the installation process to NOT back up my files to one drive, and yet it i s doing the thing i told it not to do while setting windows up, my question is, how in the world do i disable the featureplease pardon my grammar, i never use it while on a PC

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    Optical Drive Issue

    Hi Jerry, you're welcome.

    Here's mine after I rt clk'd on my Documents Folder like you show in Scrsht 11:

    I'd like to wait until you reply to my question in Scrsht 12, if it is a remnant of the process try deleting the one on the dsktp and see if the one in send to also disappears. If it stays in send to, test it, and if you're still having problems I'd suggest you could go back to: Option One: To Add or Remove Items in Send To context menu for Your Account (current user) and do Step 3 to remove it and start over using Step 4 but be very careful of your steps in creating the shortcut and be sure you d&d that shortcut to the send to part of the address.

    I'm busy today and I probably won't be back until the evening.
