  3. OneDrive File/Folder location

    Shawn Thanks for the rapid rtesponse,

    It's opening the one in its new location (F:\OneDrive) BUT I did a compare on the two folders and they are identical. I've modified a couple of spreadsheets today and the date/time stamp is identical on both copies of the file, the one on F: and the one
    in the original location on my system drive.

    The need to relocate the OneDrive folder was that I want my music, that's on the F: drive to be uploaded to OneDrive and the system drive did not have space to hold it all. it's 325gb+/-.

    When I transferred OneDrive I shut it all down. Them I MOVED the OneDrive folder from the system drive to F: After that, I MOVEd the Music folder to be a sub-folder under OneDrive. That simply renamed the files and no data movement was involved. I then restarted
    OneDrive and when allowed gave the new location of OneDrive, which was on F: Everything seemed fine until I ran a utility checking for duplicate files....

  4. Moving files from other internal Drives to Onedrive location.

    Move Library Folders to OneDrive

    I seem to have a basic misunderstanding of the process to move folders to OneDrive.

    I've followed all the directions that I've found and can't seem to get the locations moved.

    When I attempt to select a new location it simply keeps coming back to the "New Location" prompt.

    I'm trying to move Documents, Downloads, Music... etc. to My OneDrive folder, which is on a different physical drive. Just need a simple step-by-step lol

    Thanks,
