    Changing OneDrive download location


    Before using OneDrive all my data files were held on a seperate partition ion E: drive. I have now stored the main folders (eg Documents, Photographs, Spreadsheets) on OneDrive and now realise that as well as offline they are held in C: Users/Chris. Can I alter it so that these continue to be held on E: rather than in C:Users/Chris?

    Unlink OneDrive, make a new folder on E: drive, name it OneDrive. Copy everything from C:\Users\Your_Username to new OneDrive folder on E: drive. Setup OneDrive again, this time linking it to new OneDrive folder on E. drive.

    Tutorial, Option One to unlink OneDrive, Option Two to set it up again with new storage location: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/...dows-10-a.html
