  1. One Drive has messed with all my files


    Fairly new windows user, Windows 10 Home


    So recently one drive has been backing up every file on my computer, but always showing pop-ups that are saying "You do not have enough one drive storage" and that I cannot back up any more files. I never told one drive to back up anything, and now all of my file locations have been moved. A lot of my desktop icons are no longer there, and every file in Documents, Desktop, AppData, Pictures, etc. are now in users>mason>OneDrive. How do I get these files out and completely stop one drive from moving future files and backing up everything?


    Thanks so much, Mason.

    :)

    how to copy files from the CD to the Computer drive

    Hi Hankriegler,

    I would suggest you to follow the steps below:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Click file explorer from the list.

    • Select the CD/DVD drive and hit Enter.

    • Select the files you want to copy from the CD/DVD, then select the drive where you want to paste or save.
    I hope the information is helpful.

    Thank you.

    Need solution for automating transferring of files to flash drives

    I am wary of jumping straight in at the deep end so I have a couple of questions.

    1 How do you know which files to copy to which memory stick? Can you put a list for each one in a text file?
    2 Are you free to give each memory stick a specific label so that it can be detected in order to trigger the specific list that you have written for that memory stick?

    I do have a batch file procedure for identifying the drive letter currently being used for a given external drive label. So perhaps you could trigger a common batch file that
    Step 1 - checks each drive in turn to read its label and then find its current drive letter
    Step 2 - for each detected drive, look up the list given in the batch file to identify which [if any] text file to look in to find the files to copy to that memory stick.
    Step 3 - copies the files listed in the relevant text file

    One Drive has messed with all my files

    Stored files in Hard Drive

    You can use Windows search. Just search for *.* on a desired drive. When list is done just arrange them by size LOL.

    You can do it via command line as well and make an output text file showing files and their sizes (but without arrangement)
