    One Drive and multiple disks


    Windows 10 - Latest version.
    My main data drive has a folder OneDrive which synchronizes with the cloud OneDrive. I have also set OneDrive to synchronize with a couple of folders on another drive. The problem is that these files are now duplicated on the OneDrive folder in the data drive.
    eg
    D: drive contains OneDrive root folder with several subfolders - Folder A, Folder B, etc. These synchronize with cloud OneDrive
    E: drive does not contain a OneDrive folder but I have synchronized Folder X with the cloud OneDrive.

    Problem is that Folder X that lives on drive E: is now duplicated on the OneDrive folder on drive D.

    Can this be prevented?

    :)
