    I have been using Windows 11 on a Surface Pro 2 for several months. As the C drive is only 120gb I have set 'Save space and download files as you use them' thus keeping 40gb or so free. However in the last couple of days, one large 90gb OneDrive folder containing photos is being synced to the device using all the free disc space. 'Free up space' does work but the downloading starts immediately after. OneDrive is now unusable as I can't stop the C drive filling up.Please help.Chris

    :)

  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.

    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.

      (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.
