    OneDrive Documents acts as default directory for Documents.


    Hi, everyone.
    I've trying out the new preview, 10240. Everything works fine except for the default documents folder (and the same for Images). As my screenshots reveal, by default the documents and images folder are the ones with OneDrive.
    (My system is in Spanish, but it seems self-explanatory, I believe)

    After some examination, I located the "Storage" section in the new settings window and I see that the default folder for Documents is OneDrive. However, after I set to "This PC (Drive C)" it doesn't do anything, as as soon as I close the window, the option reverts back to OneDrive.

    I actually like and use OneDrive, and I had no problems with it with Win8.1. So I don't want to disable it.
    Thanks. Any help is appreciated!

    If it is changing when you exit. It could be an issue with One Drive not properly syncing. Have you tried turning One Drive off, then reboot, log in and turn back on OneDrive?

    Well, I tried disconnecting my account (now the OneDrive icon on the system tray is grey colored). Still no luck. Will it make a difference to disable it all together? If so, how is it done? I don't see any option for that (appart from ticking off OneDrive in the system tray menu and keeping it from starting with my system, which I already tried).

    It will always start with the OS, because it stores your Roaming profile. The other part is something that not everyone is having issues with. You are the only one I am seeing who has stated that they are having issues with it.

    Not quite the same issue, but people in microsoft forums where having a similar problem, so I guess it's safe to say there were more people facing problems with Documents, Pitures and OneDrive.

    The folder cant be moved here - Microsoft Community

    I followed one of the solutions posted there and I was able to fix the situation: I created a local account with admin level, I erased the account linked with my outlook accout and created it again. I logged after that, and the problem was gone.

    Thank you for the assistance, bro67.

    I have the same problem, but I'm too lazy to deal with it and it's not a big deal to me, so I'll just leave it for now.

    Of course you can disable onedrive. I don't need it myself so that's always the first thing i do after installing windows. Just run "gpedit.msc" and go to "Computer configuration" -> "administrative templates" -> "windows components" -> "ondrive" and enable the option "Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage". I even disabled the onedrive icon to show up in the explorer all together.
