    I am very naïve about computers and was told by someone that OneDrive was a good place to backup your files, but nothing more about it than that and I took his word at face value. And I have a USB drive that has very very important information on it and it was not backed up anywhere else, so I decided to put it there. My intention was going to be to re-back it up to OneDrive once a month for security, in case anything happened to the USB drive.

    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.

      OneDrive ce960e20-2ea4-4298-8ec8-8399b1b20e20.png

      (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.
