    Issue with stopping a downloading folder


    Hi,


    I accidentally clicked on a folder to sync in Onedrive that contains 14GB of files. Now that the folder has started downloading, if I try to uncheck the folder is says that I cannot do so "Sorry your changes ouldn't be saved... Some of the files you are trying to sync aren't in one drive yet....." Thing is I don't want to download them because I don't want that much space used on my PC.


    Any ideas on a way to stop it or do I have to wait a couple of days for the 14GB to download first, onlt then to turn it off and waste that download.


    Thanks.

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Issue with stopping a downloading folder

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
