How to change onedrive target folder

November 8, 2018 at 03:59:46
Specs: Windows XP
Hello all,

Just started to try to use the OneDrive facility provided under my Office 2016 Pro Plus licence on Windows 10 Pro.

I've placed some files onto my O365 OneDrive storage online.

Next I've indicated within the web interface that I want to run the app on windows to sync my files to PC.

Onedrive starts on the PC and prompts me to specify the folder to write to.

However, below the folder I specify, it creates a folder called "Onedrive - leverage innovative users". I've tried a few times to unlink and re-do but it does not offer me a way to change this target folder name.

Anybody know why this is happening and how to change it? I would like to specify the target folder created as say c:\users\username\documents\OD (to keep it short as poss).

Hope you can assist.

Cheers!

Julian

See if this "how to" is of any help?

https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/...

and there's this

The second link is M$-land and may be more detailed/useful if the first link isn't?

Thanks trvlr but both these articles talk about moving the drive to another location. Microsoft also has a similar help instruction.

However, this does not allow me to change the target folder name, only where that folder lives :-(

So still looking for the answer I'm afraid...

This is another MS-land how to that does describe how to rename a folder on OneDrive

https://support.office.com/en-us/ar...

See if it does what you want?

And this is another offering from another site, and gives more info re’ how the initial default folder is named; and how to change its name.
