    cmoe,

    Your Pictures library doesn't show a OneDrive folder in it.

    "Camera Roll" and "Saved Pictures" are part of OneDrive, and have their own separate library by default. If you delete them, they should remain gone unless default libraries are restored or something is saving to them.

    Every restart, they come back. Don't like OneDrive, don't like forced-down-my-throat default libraries that won't go away.

    Is there a way to modify the default libraries, where 'modify' means delete, destroy, etc.?

    You should be able to remove and delete them at will to keep them gone unless restored. At least that's how it works on all my installations.

    As a test, create a new account on the PC to see if it does the same when signed in to it.

    I'm not sure about the OneDrive issue, but you can redirect programs which try to save in your Documents/Pictures/Music in your User folder to the other hard drive by doing this: Redirect a folder to a new location - Windows Help
    Then it won't matter if they keep reappearing in the Libraries or Quick Access.

    You are right. If I delete "Camera Roll" and "Saved Pictures" the Libraries disappear and remain disappeared if I restart.

    But the Pictures/Documents/Music -Folders come back when I restart. As long as I prevent OneDrive to start at Windows Logon (OneDrive Settings) the folders which I dont want to have remain gone.

    For example on my last screenshot you see three different documents folders. The First one is on my D:\ (this is the only folder I want to have there), the second folder is definitely the OneDrive-Documents-Folder and the last one is the standard-User-Documents-folder ... And everything must have somethin to do with OneDrive, although the User-Documents-Folder should have nothing to do with it ... But if I prevent starting Onedrive everything is fine

    Hi,

    yes i have the same issue on Windows 10.
    I disabled OneDrive from loading at startup and folders are no more automatically added to libraries. But as soon as i turn on OneDrive to Sync files... folders goes back into the libraries!
    It is so annoying! Never had problem like that before! and i cannot get rid of it!

    Same here


    I have the same problem. It seems it is global. The best thing is that if I add a new folder to the library, it doesn't get deleted.
    But still, the order of folders in libraries is changed AND the default save location and public save location are reset every time OneDrive desktop app runs (usually at login if I don't disable it). For me it happens only on Documents and Pictures libraries, though. Music and other libraries seem safe.
