    Hi folks 1) Install rclone on Linux via your package manager - on arch / manjaro it's in the AUR (yay rclone) 2) follow these instructions after installing rclone (start at step 2 in the instructions !! skip step 1 -- install via your own package manager) How To Mount OneDrive In Linux Using Rclone (Supports Business And Personal Accounts) - Linux Uprising Blog After Web browser opens -- sign in and save as book mark Then next time at boot or whenever to mount the one drive disk simply run this command as a normal user rclone --vfs-cache-mode writes mount "onedrive": ~/OneDrive Your OneDrive cloud disk will be mounted on onedrive in your Linux system - access just like Windows And from the browser Job done !!! Cheers jimbo

    OneDrive - Bait and switch (but to what?)

    Google Drive offers 17GB free, I see no discernible reason to bother with OneDrive's crippled storage capacity.

    EDIT: For a painless transfer, I used microsoft's SyncToy to do a daily backup of DropBox/OneDrive items nightly at 4PM to a Google Drive folder. Once I had finished setting up my phone's automatic backup and had my work flow transferred, I just stopped the auto-backup script and uninstalled OneDrive/DropBox and carried on using Google Drive. Switching cloud storage service isn't remotely arduous.

    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.
