    Windows creating many .ini files, causine problems for OneDrive


    My Onedrive is constantly reporting .ini and .db files that it cannot process.

    Frequently it halts and I get

    OneDrive "Can't upload files - A file problem is blocking all uploads"

    At this point OneDrive is not giving me the backup that I need.


    If I do a search and delete all the .ini and .db files on my computer more files appear within a few minutes.


    Any suggestions?

    :)

  3. Snippet C#: INI Files

    GetSections() will return a string[] of section names. If you want the values too, just do a for or for loop to enumerate them. For example:

    Code: foreach (string section in ini.GetSections()) { Console.WriteLine("[" + section + "]"); foreach (string key in ini[section].GetKeys()) Console.WriteLine(key + "=" + ini[section][key]); Console.WriteLine(); }[/quote]

    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.
