    Onedrive sync 1 folder on external drive


    Hey all,

    I installed "Onedrive Backup" on my server. It auto backups my whole server to my Onedrive account. Now I would like to sync just that 1 folder from my Onedrive to an external drive on my PC. Is that possible?

    :)

  2. OneDrive Temp Folder

    I have my local OneDrive folder on an external drive. My online OneDrive is about 255 GB. The problem is, it is syncing to two folders on my external drive:

    1) G:\OneDrive

    2_ G:\OneDrive Temp

    Obviously, it is taking a very long time to sync to both locations and is doubling the size of the used space on the drive. How do I remove the OneDrive Temp folder?

  4. Onedrive sync 1 folder on external drive

    This PC leads to the OneDrive folder.

    The folders the you see on This PC are linked to your
    OneDrive
    account, therefore when you open the folder or file, the path automatically routes to OneDrive. To prevent this from happening, we suggest that you unlink your
    OneDrive account by following the steps provided in the previous post. Once you're done, you can then sign back in and change the path of your
    OneDrive folder.

    NOTE: OneDrive can sync only with folders on a drive formatted with the NTFS file system, which is most commonly a hard disk drive on your computer, or an external hard disk drive. Portable storage, such as USB flash drives
    or solid state memory drives, use a different file system and won't sync with OneDrive.


    Let us know if you need further assistance.
