    OneDrive Delete Confirmation Message

    Don't know if this will solve your problem, but suggest you uninstall OneDrive, then delete the OneDrive folder in C:\Users\User-name\AppData\Local\Microsoft, and then reinstall OneDrive.

    Deleting on-disk OneDrive folder WITHOUT deleting from cloud?

    Dear Cerberus.

    Er - here's a picture of my OneDrive folder, if I can work out how to attach it to this! No cloudsigns or ticks in boxes, just a long list of files I want only in the cloud, not on the hard drive (but don't want to delete FROM the cloud!!)

    It's come up saying 'Attach=Config}347209[/attach] so I hope something appears when I post this!

    Very sorry - how do I make the ticks and cloud signs appear? BTW - there's more in that list than's appearing in the screenshot, that's why it doesn't look like that many files.

    Yours respectfully

    Chris.
