  1. OneDrive security


    Can someone please advise me, or direct me to a page, about the security offered by the OneDrive system please. I was recently involved in the Ransomware attack on the QNAP world as I had a TS-251 in my LAN to back up several computers - all has been lost.How does OneDrive protect me from such attacks? Or does it at all?

    :)

  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.

    That made me so facepalm. Some people have absolutely no clue. I hope they don't take you for granted with all this you're doing for them.

    SonicWall is a good security product, so Mindweaver's suggestion sounds like a good one and should make for a rather bigger baby step. Let's hope they take it.
