  1. XXX:\OneDrive\Desktop is unavailable error upon startup. Location is not available. Please help


    Hi

    I recently changed the default setup location of my OneDrive from then C drive to an external drive. I later changed my mind and unlinked the OneDrive account off the external drive and then deleted all the files from the external drive. My whenever I use the laptop without this external drive, I gety this error message. Does anyone know how to fix this? It's like my computer is thinking my account settings got shifted to the external drive, i.e. Pictures, Documents, Videos, Desktop. Thank you in advance for any help.

    :)

  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.

    Windows 10 Desktop Error message "Location is not available"

    Hello

    I have a PC with Windows 10 installed. I'm getting a flashing error message on my desktop and I am unable to navigate my computer:

    "Location is not available

    system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop is unavailable. If the location is on a network, make sue you;re connected to the network or internet, and then try again. If the location still can't be found, it might have been moved or deleted."

    Thank you in advance.
