    I see. Yeah, the smart files feature would have been good for that. To bad it was removed.

    Is the free version of FileBrick a good workaround ?

    This all does NOT work on my PC. I see the file explorer for OneDrive, but right clicking gives all kinds of unnecessary options but certainly NOT the option to choose what to sync.

    Can I get help from W 10

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum

    Are you right clicking Onedrive in the taskbar?
    Then select settings from here

    Can you help me please. I have Documents on one drive (D) and my Photos, Videos and Music on another drive (E).
    Is there a way of adding these to OneDrive without moving the files? I hope that is clear, I would like to keep the files separate on my PC but have them sync with One Drive.

    Hello lafargeotte, :)

    You could set OneDrive to be able to fetch files from you PC to do so.

    I read this thread while searching for an answer as to why my desktop runs so slowly when synced with OneDrive.
    I also noticed the date so information may have changed.
    My problem is that when I sync my desktop to Onedrive, the machine slows down very noticeably.
    It is not a big problem b/c I just work in the cloud when I wish and separately work in Windows when I need to.
    I have only photos in the cloud.
    Should my machine be able to work at the same speed whether I am synced to the cloud or not?

    Hello maranna, :)

    It depends on how much is having to be synced, but that should mostly only affect your bandwidth usage and performance.

    Usually once OneDrive has finished initially syncing everything, it should settle down and hardly be noticeable.
