Windows 10: Unsyncing One Drive Solved

    Unsyncing One Drive


    This afternoon I had a strange happening. When I turned on my machine and booted I got a message saying one of my Excel folders could not be synced with one drive. When I opened that file on my desktop, the calculations did not provided the latest and correct answers. I always have a pretty good idea of the range the answers should be in. They were way off. I had a backup of all my files on an external HD and thank goodness they were intact as far as I can tell.

    I want to keep a copy of the latest files on One Drive but I don't want them automatically synchronized. In otherwords, I want One Drive to behave a one huge HD that I read and write to when I choose to do so without synchronization.

    Hi

    If you go to OneDrive settings you can set up selective sync. ie Choose what folders you want Onedrive to sync and what folders not to sync

    Thank you very much, Why Me.

    I am having trouble finding the One Drive settings you mention. Several places here on the web say I should right click on the One Drive Icon or the the White Cloud icon on the task bar to see the files to be synchronized. My task bar has neither of them. Is there another way to get to the settings?

    Thanks again.

    I finally tried uninstalling and reinstalling Onedrive. That solved the problem.
