    How to remove onedrive for business but keep onedrive personal

    I had both personal and business onedrive accounts on my computer. I no longer need the business account so I unlinked the pc and signed out. I can't get rid of the location in file explorer and I get a constant nag to log in to business onedrive. I no longer have access to the business account.

    I have tried everything I could find online but it normally "fixes" the personal too so I have to reverse it. As you can see in the attached image the account in yellow is the one I wish to remove. It doesn't even sync anything at the moment.

    If you installed OneDrive for Business from your O365 for Business portal, you will see two OneDrive entries in Start menu. In this case you might get lucky simply by uninstalling the OneDrive for Business:

    Notice that this only applies if you have installed it from O365 portal as part of Office 2016 desktop suite. If you did not separately install Office suite but instead just added a workplace OneDrive account to existing OneDrive, your Start menu only has one entry for OneDrive; in that case do not uninstall it as it would also uninstall the personal OneDrive.

    Unfortunately I can't uninstall by right clicking.

    Did anyone find a solution to this? I have the same issue. I dont know what O365 portal is. I installed office personal, then did some magic to get onedrive to also sync a separate business account (it was not easy). NowI want to remove the buseinss onedrive, and if I do anything to disable any onedrive, it always disables both.

    I have the same issue... Old workplace OneDrive sitting in my Windows Explorer that I can't unlink or delete...
    It's really annoying, especially when Windows keeps reminding me there is a school or work account with a problem!
    Help! Did anyone find a simple way to get this sorted please???
