OneDrive Delete Confirmation Message Solved

    OneDrive Delete Confirmation Message

    I hope this is the right forum and I hope someone can help.

    I'm using OneDrive on the computer (Windows 10),and it randomly updated the other day. When I pressed delete to delete a file instead of the usual Windows 'this item will be removed to the recycle bin' message it was a OneDrive message and I accidentally clicked the box that says not to warn when deleting a file on Onedrive. Is there any way to change it back - instead of the file just moving straight to the recycle bin after clicking delete?

    I know if you right click Recycle Bin there is the 'display delete confirmation dialogue' option - but that only applies to files not housed in a OneDrive folder.

    I've emailed the OneDrive help team who told me to get in touch with the Windows Team, but their chat thing was useless and told me to 'ask a question and get community help - but when I tried to submit a question it said that forum was locked.

    I've tried uninstalling OneDrive and reinstalling it and I've tried resetting OneDrive but neither one made any difference.

    Does anyone know of any way to get that confirmation message back?

    Don't know if this will solve your problem, but suggest you uninstall OneDrive, then delete the OneDrive folder in C:\Users\User-name\AppData\Local\Microsoft, and then reinstall OneDrive.

    We're was the file on the PC or on one drive it now keeps files on the one drive and only download when needed that could make a difference as your not deleting a local file

    YES! That's it. Thank you so much.

    I did a lot of googling, but clearly wasn't googling the right phrases.
