    Five pages of users trying to help you , users have given you several ways that it would work. The best being Group Policy. I know that works as I have used it./
    5 pages of people not understanding my question is more like it.

    For the empteenth time, I am not trying to remove, disable, or otherwise turn off OneDrive!!
    All of these suggestions were how to uninstall, remove, disable OneDrive. Seriously, people need to re-read my question!

    I managed to solve it myself in my most recent post, but I'd appreciate a more "proper" solution.

    Remove OneDrive Folders from Libraries? - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums

    I used the above fix and it worked on my release of Windows 10 build 10240. I do not have any library's and they are of no use in Windows 10. Maybe if you filled in your System Specs it would help. There is no need to reply as I won't see it.

    Since you went this way, why not just remove those extra permissions from OneDrive itself, play with it more.

    Well, is there a way to set permissions of a program so it can't write to your hard drive? The OneDrive program itself is just a single EXE in local appdata, obviously my user would need execute permissions but removing all others, I think it would still do the library adding.

    Thanks for actually trying to help though DTG1!

    Permissions work both ways, you need it to read, so assume that it needs some to write, however pointing a program where it can write can be a bit harder. I dont know enough about dll's to say much, but Onedrive has to save its settings somewhere, in "some-kind" of file, typically *.ini's, normally not within the .exe itself. Knowing that M$ doesnt want us to change how OneDrive works, the settings file maybe an encrypted. hidden system file, idk. Personally, I dont trust M$ or OneDrive, if I need online storage ill go with something less intrusive like Dropbox or even Mega, something I know I can uninstall when something better comes along. Plus I know its easier to safely install Dropbox/Mega on any device I want, and safely uninstall them.

    There are some .ini files, I mentioned it in one of my earlier posts. I didn't see anything in there pertaining to libraries, though, but there might be a hidden command... hence why I brought it up in case anyone did some tinkering.

    Solution


    I'm not sure if this thread is still alive, but I have a solution, which works fine for me. If you don't care about the OneDrive default folders like camera, music etc. just delete these.

    Hope this input helps some people.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    Not sure why everyone is worried about Onedrive folders. MS is removing it soon. Everyone should have received their email from MS.
    Here is a short version.
    We’re emailing you because you’re a member of one or more groups in OneDrive. Groups will no longer be available in OneDrive after October* 16, 2015, and all group files and info will be deleted.

    So why worry about deleting folders in onedrive?? unless you actually use the piece of crap.
