  1. software installation files go in to wrong onedrive folder


    My normal Onedrive folder is in f:\ and is working fine . I have found another in C:\Users\xxx\ which was presumably the default when windows was installed. I don't want this onedrive but there are various word docs in there as well as other parts of software I have downloaded. When I install anything its necessary to check nothing will go into the unwanted onedrive folder. How do I fix this problem.

    Hope someone has a solution - thanks for reading

    :)

  2. onedrive duplicating my folders...

    Hi.

    Again, onedrive is going crazy and is duplicating my main folder, full of subfolders. It's locking me out of all my files. I have windows 10, Office 365 home. I paused synch at the moment before I have 1000 copy of my folder, which I can't open anyway!
    Please don't ask me any question that will further delay the repair. Simply give me a step by step solution and then improve onedrive so this won't happen again to so many of us. I suggest you also add "onedrive" in the list of "Windows Topics" below since
    thousands of users have issues with it.

    Thanks

    Michel

  3. Music Folder Behaving Badly in OneDrive

    Hi Robert,

    There is a possibility that the Music folder is synced to your OneDrive that is why any files deleted from either of the folders is synced to the other. For us to better assist you with the said folder, we'd like to ask for additional information:

    • Can you please provide a screenshot of the Music folder from the OneDrive folder and home folder?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you were advised to do?
    We will wait for your quick response.
