    OneDrive Folders


    In Windows 10, I already have folders for Music, Videos, Documents and Pictures.
    Why can't these folders be synced with OneDrive? It would make so much more sense. Instead I have to create separate folders in my OneDrive directory in Windows Explorer with the same names, doubling everything up. Am I missing something?

    Thanks for the reply - the second tutorial is exactly what I needed to do for Documents and Pictures but I am also looking to do the same thing for Music and Videos.

    Ok, good. You can set the storage location settings for those folders to be OneDrive to do the same.

    I only have "This PC" as an option when clicking the drop down boxes on Music and Videos. No OneDrive option is available

    In that case, it'll need to be done manually.

    To do so:

    1. Include the OneDrive Music and Videos folders to the corresponding Music and Videos library.
    2. Set these included folders as your default save location for the library.

    I haven't a clue how to, sorry, any instructions?

    Excellent - Thanks for your help. Is it just me or should this be much simpler? OneDrive seems to have a lot of problems in Windows 10

    You're most welcome. Yeah, it should definitely work better for Storage Location settings.
