    My story with OneDrive


    Hi everyone,


    I am just very anoyed by my windows system at this moment, that stores all my document to "C:\info\OneDrive\not very old files because this was my standard folder some time ago\Documents" and want to let you participate about my experience with OneDrive.


    Back in year 2002 or so I went on holiday as a teenager. I shared the photos with my friends using "Windows Live"/MSN at the time. I almost forgot about the photos and I think I imported them to another Microsoft service automatically when "Windows Live" was shut down.

    However, a few years ago I started seeing these pictures after a fresh windows installation in my "picture" folder. In my documents folder there also is a bunch of old files that I don't want to delete, but I don't want to have them synced either. So I renamed my folders to "very old". However, this folder was automatically set as standard-document folder system wide. So I renamed it to "not very old files because this was my standard folder some time ago". And what happened? All my computers promt me exatly this stupid folder as my new document location.

    So I click "No, thanks" whenever I am asked about OneDrive.

    But... also my new and shiny surface book prompts me to "C:/Users/info/OneDrive/not very old files because this was my standard folder some time ago/Documents". I can not change this setting due to an error message "The folder can not be moved, because there is another folder at the same location that can not be moved" (I have no idea what the problem is, just please use another path for documents dear windows).


    I deleted the folder several times - it is always recreated. I uninstalled OneDrive several times, on several systems, without an effect.


    So I just live with this stupid configuration for years now.


    Also my user was called "info" at some point. Only because my mailadress begins with "info@"? So my name is info now.

    Inside my "info"-User-folder, there are the folders/sub-points "Documents", "Dokumente" and "Dokumente" (the same name twice). I know that one of them is my library (which I absolutely don't want to use). I love to search for files in these three locations (behind one of them is "not very old files because this was my standard folder some time ago")!


    There was a similar problem when I wanted to delete my windows profile picture, which is also 10 years old. It shows me, laughing stupidly with a knife in my hand. It was funny at the time, but this pictures is not only shown on all of my computers, but also on professional presentations in all office-products. I finaly could remove the picture by uploading another black picture.


    So I'm not asking for help, after living with these annoyances for so many years now. Please go back to the roots at some point in the future!

    :)

  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.
