Onedrive STOP syncing could with PC

I don't see how to edit the title.




Hi
I have a billion files on onedrive.com and I do not want my pc to sync.

I want to keep whats on my pc ON my pc and I want onedrive.com to NOT start deleting onedrive.com files because they are not on my pc.


Reason: I mainly use onedrive for automatic photo uploads and my pc is completely out of the mix. The space on *.com is much larger than what I have available on my pc.


Thanks!!

It's simpler to use Google sync and upload photo to Google as its unlimited it will backup in seconds and you can access from anywhere it can be set to backup from any folder and directly from camera

In Windows 10 machines, OneDrive is pre-installed and syncing files on OneDrive is optional and can be set via Windows Group Policy. In Windows 7 machines, OneDrive is only an optional App, and the syncing options are a lot less flexible. There is no OneDrive Group Policy in Windows 7.

Basically, when you install the OneDrive app on Windows 7 you can select which folders to sync, when you reach the relevant dialog box. Setup OneDrive on Windows 7 and earlier - YouTube. . You could uninstall the current OneDrive app, and re-install on your machine, setting up your sync preferences, as you go.

Another option to address syncing, would be to upgrade your computer to a Windows 10 machine.

You don't pay anything for photo storage?
