    Reinstate Onedrive After Previously Disabling


    A few years back when Onedrive free capacity was dramatically reduced by Microsoft I stopped using it. I found it hard to get straight forward instructions to disable Onedrive & download all the files that had previously only been stored on Onedrive to my local harddrive so I'm not sure I completed that transition successfully, however my files do appear to be correctly organised in File Explorer.

    Fast forward 3 years to now- I want to start using Onedrive again to sync Documents, Pictures & Desktop files from that original laptop to a new 2nd laptop. I have reinstated the app, signed in etc, files don't just automatically start syncing. I want to have offline copies of all the files on both laptops and have everything auto sync. How do I achieve that? I'm really uncertain on the very basics to even get started and am wary of creating duplicate files as I recall this happening when I originally stopped using Onedrive and I had to clean up after the process.


    Thx

    :)

  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.

    Disable OneDrive


    Thanks for your suggestion but redundancy in a forum is inherent. Just like making suggestions to other users who have 20 years experience with online forums. *Wink
