Windows 10: Does System Drives Back up Include OneDrive Folder

    Does System Drives Back up Include OneDrive Folder


    I Keep Backup of my System Drives With Macrium. My OneDrive Folder is in Default place and size is 10 GB. If Backup also include this Folder, then it means I am wasting time and space to unnecessary Backup this because I already have these files in cloud.

    In this scenario, Is it not advisable to permanently move my OneDrive Folder to another Partition so that my Backup size will be small and will take less time.

    Please guide.

    Can't you just specifically remove the OneDrive folder from the backup routine?

    I don't know whether Macrium free has this facility or not. I will have to find out.
