Windows 10: Onedrive sync selection issue Solved

    Onedrive sync selection issue

    So, I am just now getting around to trying to solve this problem due to the fact that I am needing to use the computer that has this problem at the moment. When ever anything that would put crap in My Documents (I.E. Rockstar) it instead goes to onedrive. The System will not let me change the setting on where documents get saved automatically. when I try to change it the selection box just goes blank. Click image for larger version.

ID:	59059 if I try to select "This PC" again it will then show up, however if I go away and come back the setting is back to saying "OneDrive". Does anyone know of anything I can do to fix this issue?

    Hello :)

    The usual place to adjust the OneDrive settings is from the OneDrive icon in the System tray. If you open up the icons by clicking the ^ symbol, right click on the OneDrive cloud icon and select settings. In the Auto-save tab you can select where you want documents to save and make sure this is set to "This PC only".

    Hope this helps!

    If you have them both set to This PC only like in the tutorial above and clicked on OK to apply, then you might see if using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore their default locations may help.
