I have a new computer and I set the files up to go into One Drive. Now I don't want files in One drive because I don't want to pay the monthly fee. How do I move them?

✔ Best Answer
OneDrive is actually a free service. Unpaid users get up to 5 GB storage, according to Wikipedia. If you have more than that, well...

Assuming you're running Windows, click the OneDrive icon in the notification area of the task bar (next to the clock) and then click the folder icon at the top of the popup window. This will take you to the local OneDrive folder. Copy everything from there to somewhere else, and then once you've got your stuff locally, simply delete them from OneDrive and they're gone. (Permanently.)

To downgrade from the paid version to the free version, open the OneDrive site ( http://onedrive.live.com ) and in the left menu pane click "Plans and upgrades", or perhaps "Manage storage". (I can't help further than this because I only use the free version myself.) Make sure you've got less than 5 GB of stuff in OneDrive before downgrading. (I don't know what would happen if you're over the limit, but I imagine you'll lose stuff.)
