Windows 10: Can I copy files straight from one OneDrive account to an other one?

  1.    29 Jun 2018 #1

    Can I copy files straight from one OneDrive account to an other one?

    After reinstalling Windows from scratch I created one Administrator MS account, one Administrator Local account and one Standard User account. I want to use the last one for all my day-to-day activity on my PC. However, in my previous setup all my data on OneDrive belonged to the Administrator MS account. I would like to transfer these data to the Standard User account.

    I think that during the installation of Windows I was asked if I wanted to synchronize my data with OneDrive and I answered "Yes". The installation of Windows was done with the Administrator MS account.

    My question is, can I use Windows Explorer to move my files on OneDrive to the Standard user's OneDrive account or would I have to do it in a different way.

    Secondly, what does the synchronization mean in practice? Which files are synchronized and when is it done? My actual data are on D drive and I would only want to synchronize them manually rather than automatically.

    In summary I would like to:

    1. Move data from one OneDrive account (MS Administrator) to an other (Standard user).
    2. Stop synchronizing the MS Administrator OneDrive account.
    3. The Standard user's OneDrive account also not to be synchronized.

    I would greatly appreciate your help.

    Many thanks!

    EDIT: I later found that I need Administrator privileges to copy files to this OneDrive.
