    OneDrive and Carbonite not set up they way I want to use them.


    I’ve had Carbonite on my Windows 10 PC for years and I want to keep using it on the PC. I just bought a new laptop with Windows 10 and I only want some of my files on the laptop. I don’t want all of them there.


    Although my PC had OneDrive I had not ever used it.


    I want to use OneDrive on both computers to access those few files I use all the time; and still have Carbonite backing up all my files on the PC. It isn’t working that way.


    I set up OneDrive on the laptop and then on the PC.


    When I moved a file to OneDrive on my PC it removed it from ‘This PC’. Yet, on my laptop the file is in both the OneDrive folder and the This PC folder.


    I contacted Carbonite and they said that’s way it will work because of the Files on-Demand feature in OneDrive which isn’t compatible with Carbonite.


    I asked if the reverse would work -- if the file was on my laptop first and then put in OneDrive could I get them from OneDrive on my PC and have them also in This PC for the Carbonite backup and they said yes.


    It doesn’t work that way either. When I get them from OneDrive on my PC they aren’t on OneDrive anymore.


    Did I not set something up right when I started? Thanks for any help on this.

    :)

  2. OneDrive conflicting with Carbonite

    I've used Carbonite for years with no problem, but since moving to Windows 10 was having real problems with Carbonite getting stuck part way, etc.. Have been told that this is because it conflicts with OneDrive. I wasn't even aware that I was using OneDrive,
    and don't particularly want to do so, as I have no need for document-sharing and so forth.

    However, it looks as if OneDrive has been 'kidnapping' all sorts of files and folders and, when I try to copy the item and move it back to a desktop folder, the system just keeps saying 'Copying from OneDrive to OneDrive' How do I stop this happening, and
    how can I save things where I know they can be properly backed-up?

    HELP!

  3. OneDrive conflicting with Carbonite

    Thanks, Greg, for the quick and detailed response - much appreciated!

    My main concern with the free OneDrive backup is really based on recent experiences with forced updates on various things - especially the most recent Windows 10 update which seems to have totally jiggered up my Hotmail/Outlook access via preferred browser
    Chrome, a number of other issues, and has made the entire system slow and 'jumpy'.

    I'm scared that, if I trust really important stuff to OneDrive, some changes will be made to it too, at some point, and I'll lose it all. (At least with a paid service, I could scream and shout at them!)

    Is there any way of setting OneDrive (rather than disabling it completely) so that I can consciously save items to it, but can also choose to save to Carbonite for others?

    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.
