    How to Sync Any Folder to OneDrive in Windows 10


    OneDrive is free online storage that comes included with Windows 10 and used with your Microsoft account. Save your files to OneDrive, and you'll be able to get to them from any PC, tablet, or phone.

    By default, you can choose which folders to sync in OneDrive with your PC. Windows 10 stores your OneDrive folder in your account's %UserProfile% folder (ex: "C:\Users\Brink") by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to sync any folder to OneDrive that is not already in OneDrive for your account in Windows 10.

    Thank you to our member cereberus for providing this idea.





    Here's How:

    1 Open a command prompt.

    2 Type the command below into the command prompt, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)
    *Arrow mklink /j "%UserProfile%\OneDrive\Folder Name" "Full path of source folder"

    Substitute Full path of source folder in the command above with the actual full path of the folder (ex: "F:\Example Folder") you want to sync with your OneDrive.

    Substitute Folder Name in the command above with the folder name (ex: "Example Folder") you want to show in OneDrive. This folder is a junction point of the source folder. It would be best to use the same name as the source folder to help know what it's linked to.

    For example: mklink /j "%UserProfile%\OneDrive\Example Folder" "F:\Example Folder"

    3 The source folder (ex: "F:\Example Folder") will now be synced with your OneDrive (ex: "%UserProfile%\OneDrive\Example Folder"). Anything you copy, save, and delete in either of these two folders will also be applied to the other folder. (see screenshots below)

    If you want to undo this junction point and stop syncing the source folder with your OneDrive, you would only delete the folder (ex: "%UserProfile%\OneDrive\Example Folder") in your OneDrive folder. This will not delete the source folder (ex: "F:\Example Folder"), but will also delete it from your online OneDrive.

    Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Anyone know how to remove "OneDrive - For Business" from the Explorer navigation panel? I've tried just about every registry modification, and windows policy for "Onedrive" but they only seem to work for the consumer product, not for onedrive for business.

    The onedrive product alone is so damn annoying and continues to load itself upon startup, even when it's explicitly remove from startup. It continues to automatically load and unload itself from within the startup folder... while I'm actively watching it load itself into the startup folder.

  3. 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.

    Sync Any Folder to OneDrive in Windows 10

    Windows 10 - OneDrive

    This is Windows 10 Pro... Enterprise is an entirely different deal and I'm sure I won't have problems that route, but I'm not forking over more $ to dipshit developers. The only thing I can think of is un-linking my Office 365 accounts within Office, but that defeats the purpose of accessing the files ONLINE and managing them from there. I have two alumni accounts, not a single problem in Windows 7/8 until M$shit devs decided to integrate Onedrive. I've deleted, renamed, set read-only to "msosync.exe," ... but windows continues to add it again and again, and NOW I just noticed it's now linking to groove.exe, instead of onedrive. Sooo fn annoying!



    Onedrive on Windows 10 is not an 'app' it is integrated. Plus I don't fool around with the Windows Store thoughtless developer child bullshit. Windows Store ought to be completely removed from the Windows platform all together. Also I do not intend to completely remove Onedrive, it defeats the purpose... the purpose is to REMOVE it from Windows Explorer navigation and startup.
