    Documents and Pictures on This PC are showing the OneDrive folders


    Hello. I am new to the forums and I just bought a brand new Lenovo G51 laptop less than a week ago. It is a nice computer and the only problem I have with it is that when I signed in to OneDrive it shows under "This PC" the Documents, Pictures folders from OneDrive instead of the folders from the %userprofile% location. I have set up under Auto Save in OneDrive settings for This PC only but it still shows the OneDrive folders. Is there any way to fix the problem?

    I've taken a screenshot to show what I'm talking about.

    The only way I've found to fix the problem for me was to disable OneDrive then Uninstall it. The data I need when on other computers is best kept on USB Thumb/Flash drives.
