    Two paths to OneDrive


    I cant remember how, but a new a Folder has been generated in Explorer with my NAME, this folder contains nearly all of the files/folders showing in the default storage location, ie C:\Users\Jim Smith\, I have therefore now got a set of duplicate files in the system, more confusing is the 2 separate paths to my OneDrive file, eg,

    F:>>OneDrive>>Documents>>Spreadsheets>>Flight Sim Spreadsheets>> to the default OneDrive file, and,
    James Smiths OneDrive (Personal)>>Documents>>Spreadsheets>>Flight Sim Spreadsheets, a secondary path.

    Clearly this is causing some confusion in saving Excel and Word files, and I wondered if anybody understands how it occurred and what steps I can take in regularizing the situation.

    I am attaching 2 Screenprints to show the above but if other info is needed please contact me.
    Thanks
    Jim

  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.
