    One Drive and Wi Fi connections can they be blocked ?

    Hi All,

    I have a new HP laptop win 10 installed and I like it very much but I have an issues with One Drive .

    I use my WiFi connection at home for browsing and usual stuff which is fine and One Drive uploads to the cloud with no issues and of course does not affect my data allowance as my Internet connection is unlimited.

    In my workplace I do not have a land line and use a talkTalk MiFi dongle with a 5gb limit . I connected to the MiFi and carried on as normal but realised that the One Drive used my data quickly and soon I had a message that I had no data left .

    My enquiry is can I get One Drive to ignore my MiFi connection and only do the uploads on my home internet connection only ?

    At the moment I have to disable One Cloud when I arrive at work .

    Many Thanks Rod

    I think if you set the connection to a metered connection will stop that
