    Onedrive not showing all files on new computer


    my old computer shows 246 files on my onedrive and my new computer is only showing 139. There are files missing when I look for them. How do I get all of them to sync to my new computer?

    :)

  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.

  3. Transferring files and documents to a new computer - onedrive issues

    Hi Williams,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    It seems that you have set sync settings to sync every folder and as well as external hard drive and save only on cloud. We would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to avail folders (Docs) locally.



    1. Install OneDrive and open
      File Explorer
      .
    2. Right click on OneDrive icon on the right pane.
    3. Then select Make available offline.



      You may also want to refer
      OneDrive help
      and go through all topics under
      Popular topics and check for settings.





      Hope it helps.

      If you find the answer useful, kindly tick your response.

  4. Onedrive not showing all files on new computer

    Have OneDrive to show me the online files

    Hi Omid,

    In Windows 10, this feature has been replaced with the option to sync all files to the local computer. The online files and folders you are referring to are also known as OneDrive placeholders. Instead of displaying placeholder icons for files by default,
    OneDrive would sync all files to the local computer in Windows 10.

    One reason for the removal of OneDrive placeholders was user confusion, as they expected all files to be available on their system even when the system had no working Internet connection. However, you may want to request this feature to be back in Windows 10
    by submitting your feedback and suggestions through the Feedback Hub.

    Feedback items regularly receive Microsoft responses on the submissions in the Feedback Hub, so you can see what we are doing about your feedback. You may refer to the steps below:

    • Type Windows Feedback in the search bar.
    • Type some keywords from your issue in the box marked Search for feedback, and press
      Enter.
    • If you find your issue, upvote it. If you don't find it, select Add new feedback, then fill out the form.
