  1. Onedrive Enslavement?


    My computer got stolen. I got a new one and restored piece by piece from backups, including pictures. I selected my documents and pictures to be restored to my local drive, yet, I found that everything was restored to "Onedrive" with thousands of warnings that my "Onedrive" was full. So I started copying whatever I restored, again to my local drive, and deleted whatever had gone to onedrive - only to find everything is now deleted...! Why does Microsoft Windows FORCE me onto Onedrive?

    Our internet is sometimes DEAD SLOW and EXPENSIVE...! With my pictures on Onedrive, even though I recovered to my local disk, I sit and wait for a long time to edit just one picture, just to find my edited picture has now rolled back to this donkey called "Onedrive"...!

    How do I recover my files that I deleted on Onedrive and that Microsoft now also deleted on my hard disk?

  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.

    OneDrive folder icon changed to plain

    Hi,

    Thank you for replying.

    I understand your concern and suggest you to Unlink OneDrive and run OneDrive setup
    again and check. Here is the steps:


    • Right-click the white OneDrive cloud icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar.

      (You might need to click the Show hidden icons arrow next to the notification area to see the
      OneDrive icon.)

    • Click Settings, and then click Unlink.

    • Follow the steps in the Welcome to OneDrive wizard to set up OneDrive.
    Do notify us if the issue still persists and we'll be glad to help.
