Windows 10: Having trouble transferring user files from SSD to HDD

    Having trouble transferring user files from SSD to HDD

    Hi everyone,

    I recently installed Windows 10 Pro 64 bit and am frustratingly having troubles transferring my user folders from my SSD and HDD. Normally I would just change the location of each individual folder (Pictures, Documents, etc) and be done. Now with the addition of OneDrive, I'm finding it extremely difficult. Some folders do not have location tabs including OneDrive itself. I attempted to relink OneDrive and change the folder, but now I have 2 OneDrive folders on both my drives... I then tried unlinking completely, but now whenever I enter my folders which seem to have to go through OneDrive, I get a pop up asking for me to link my account....

    I just want to move my files from my SSD to my HDD. I don't require the use of OneDrive at all. Does anyone know exactly how this can be achieved?

    Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

    Onedrive is also a program - which can be uninstalled- as well as being a cloud service.

    Other options to disable it in various degrees:
    Enable or Disable OneDrive Integration
    Turn On or Off Run OneDrive at Startup in Windows 10
    Stop Sharing OneDrive Files and Folders
    Link or Unlink OneDrive in Windows 10

    I had trouble with One Drive a year or two ago, so I switched to Google Drive.

    I thought I was the only one (or one of few) having problems with OD. But no! The issues crop up here on the forum again and again.

    I can only suggest that if OD causes problems, turn it off. Dalchina, above, points to specific means for doing so.
