  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.

    File History & OneDrive on Demand

    I know that "files on demand" aren't saved on my computer. However, I still have the following problems:

    • After starting a new File History backup from scratch (as suggested in the first response) the majority of my Onedrive , including almost all files that are marked as "Always Keep on this Device" are not backed up.
    • Even for files marked as "Files on Demand" - surely File History should be able to back them up anyway? The whole point of a good backup system is that you have copies of files in multiple places (and OneDrive's cloud system only counts as 1). The creation
      of the file history would be download heavy as it copies every file to my backup device, but after that it should only have to download single files as changes are made.

    File History & OneDrive on Demand

    After installing the Fall Creators update my File History backup no longer backs up all my Onedrive files. In particular, any Onedrive files marked as "on demand" are not backed up.

    Is there some way around this? This seems a pretty serious issue to have an incomplete backup when I was expecting a complete backup!

    Note: some similar questions suggested checking the file system, resetting Onedrive etc. which I have done with no change.
