OneDrive Architecture

Q: OneDrive Architecture

I'm stumped by OneDrive's performance on my wife's Surface Pro. Is OneDrive only in the cloud or does the term "OneDrive" also apply to a folder or virtual folder on the S Pro's hard drive?

When we login on my wife's OneDrive account at, there are no files or photos. But in the File Explorer on the S Pro, all her documents and photos are in OneDrive, in C:\Users\<wife>\OneDrive. So where exactly exactly are the files?

The C drive's Properties window says it is nearly full, but is it? Are the OneDrive files in the cloud or not?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:AMD: The new GPU architecture

Good read, having a shared address space between the cpu and gpu opens up a lot of possibilities. Things have come a long way since the days of the 8086 and 8087, anybody here except me remember the NEC V20? That was my first processor upgrade from an 8088.

Now here is something you dont hear a lot of croncrete stuff about....
Searched for a forum on this subject but found none, so here you have it.
Some questions if you please:
-Should we be going wider and/or faster, faster?
-Should we be standardising more?
-Should we be focusing on getting the OS completely right? Should it be free?
-Is the future of computing best left entirely in the hands of Corporates or should there be some Governance?
-What is the best all round PC architecture?
-Why do they still cost so much?
-Why cant I add my new system to my old system and get the power of both?

Many more where that came from but lets open the discussion......

A:Future PC Architecture

1)The faster new technology is brought to the mainstream market, the faster prices on the "older" tech drops so it's a cycle that will benefit the consumer.

2)Standardization might help in some cases, but then that would mean either everyone has a gaming PC or they do not. That would be pretty limiting IMO.

3)Getting OSes right would not need to be the focus, since Service Packs/updates would eventually fix all the issues present in them. But yes, I do think they should be made cheaper. Free? I don't think that would help, since it would not give anyone incentive to develop something that's better and even if they do, they wouldn't be able to/willing to share it with the rest of the world.

4)Governments usually mess up things since in the end, they are able to get away with everything. Corporations depend on the end user's satisfaction to survive, so that would be a better thing. But a merging of the two ideas, such as greater governmental control over corporations regarding research wouldn't be such a bad idea.

5)This is debatable and bound to change, according to the first question, so it really isn't valid.

6)PC costs have reduced quite a lot since the late 1990s. So I don't think they cost too much.

7)Well that's because new tech always phases out old tech since companies need to sell the new tech more to earn more money to research more "new tech" and recover the cost/make a profit off of producing the recently released "new tech" that is going to become "old tech" in some years' time. They don't want you to use the old parts with the new ones since the new ones "perform better" and also get them heftier profits. And so the cycle continues...

Which, from one of these, is better as of performance for a Windows 7 OS?

2048 or...
4096 bytes / per cluster formatting?

Expert reply please (tech. details)!

Many thanks!

P.S. Enjoy the free upgrade to Windows 10, from Windows 7 or up. Thanks to the Microsoft and an off-shore communities! :)

A:Cluster architecture! Which one to pick?

Hi, well cluster architecture (server based) is not what you are referring to, I assume you mean the allocation unit size cluster?

Why do you want to know, and what do you use your computer for? We have found that the default works for most users, there is pro's and con's to any changes. SSD's also make a difference.

If you are in the process of formatting, then the following will not be relevant.

To see what you have go to start search and type:- cmd right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt copy paste:-

fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo c: > 0 & notepad 0 press enter ( this assumes the drive is C:, if not change), you can post the notepad outcome here if you like.

Keep your files backed-up and synching together across all of your devices using OneDrive Desktop App for Windows which offers gb free cloud storage for each Windows Live Hotmail Outlook ID and sells more for cheap It can be Cloud with to the your OneDrive Store Backup Sync, Files and as easy as dragging anything you want backed up into OneDrive formerly SkyDrive folder which lives both on your HD and in the Cloud which is the gauzy name for MS Servers But with a few more minutes configuration you'll have your User folders stored in the cloud ready to access on the internet and sync'd to any of your devices After trying several methods for over a year I've settled on physically moving the active User folders to the OneDrive folder with the steps in User Folders - Change Default Location You can also place the OneDrive folder on any other HD but be Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with OneDrive aware that if it is moved from C and you use Win Backup Imaging it will force the inclusion of the data drive to which Onedrive and or User folders are moved since they are System folders You can do the same on all your PC's and have one master set of files hosted and kept Sync'd this way by Onedrive even access them from any device anywhere via the internet share them publicly by invitation or link In using this method the only risk is if you'd delete a file or folder and have it sync on other devices before you realize you still need it In this case the file folder will be in each Recycle Bin For this reason I'd uncheck Recycle Bin in CCleaner so that it is only emptied manually when you have the chance to review contents Alternative method If you prefer not to move the User folders into Skydrive folder you can also copy each one there delete the content in the C User folder then rightclick each User folder in Onedrive to add it to the related Library - Include a Folder - Windows Forums If you use this Library method keep each empty C User folder in the Library so you can visually monitor if any files land there and simply drag them over to the Onedrive User folder You may want to leave some files which exceed the Onedrive size limit in C user folder so they don't cause an oversize error message

A:Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with OneDrive

Hi Greg,

Sounds like a pretty nifty idea. I've got a similar idea and I'm sure there is a downside to it that escapes me at the moment, but instead of copying why not just change the location of your user's document folder from its default location, i.e. via right clicking on the folder, then properties, and then the location tab and choosing change location, and moving it to within your SkyDrive folder on your hard drive? I guess the down side would be every document you saved, unless you made a conscious effort to "Save As" in an alternative location, it would naturally if a document, be automatically saved in the "Default" user's documents folder, which now after the change in locations would happen to be the newly relocated user's "Documents" folder now inside the SkyDrive folder which gets synced to the cloud and you might not want it in the cloud. That's the only downside I can see. Can you think of others? I'm sure I got to be missing something...

I've upgraded to Windows 10 from Window 8.1 and all is ok but OneDrive is not uploading or scyning new changes I make to word docs or text files in This PC. It worked well in Windows 8.1 but not in Windows 10. My files in Onedrive are just sitting there as copied over on the upgrade. It could be that it copied over my photographs as well as my documents so there is no space left on the OneDrive folder. I've tried to disconnect OneDrive and then 'Choose Folders' instead of All Files but this does not work either.

onedrive works differently on W8/8.1 to Win10 (and Win7)

onedrive was sort of integrated into the log-in ID on Windows 8/8.1
so to use one drive you needed to have the PC login to a MS account (or registered email , with MS)

Now you can use any MS Account

So on Windows 10 you can sign into any MSAccount to use onedrive

And the folder should be in file explorer

What happens if I delete the files in my Tablet 8.1 OneDrive Folder?  Do the corresponding files in my online OneDrive get deleted too?  I very much do not want this to happen.  The files arrived in the folder after they were uploaded to OneDrive. (synced presumably?).  I set them all so they are not available offline which I understand (just about) means they are Smart Files which do not occupy storage space on my small HDD.  But if they were synced in one direction (downloaded) is what I do with them synced in the the other direction (uploaded)?   
I think it will be clear that this is something I am new too and know (too) little about!
Also, are Smart Files unique to Microsoft / Windows, or will I find this behaviour with other Cloud services?

I've read about half a dozen blogs and about without folders OneDrive Windows 7 to from Synchronizing relocating? all the posts I can find on this but Synchronizing folders from Windows 7 to OneDrive without relocating? the only solution that is being presented sounds like quot If you want to sync folders from Windows to your OneDrive just change the location of the folder in the folder properties quot But if you have a directory nested somewhere on your secondary D and do not want to move the directory or you have a single file that is not part of your User's library and you just want to synchronize this single file without moving it off of D that there isn't a way to have OneDrive Synchronizing folders from Windows 7 to OneDrive without relocating? automatically copy any changes made to this file automatically Or is there a way for us to setup our users so that the can sync files from their D drive or even a mapped drive to their OneDrive without having to do it manually every time a change is made Or is the only solution to just keep two copies of the file one on D and one in the OneDrive PC library and run a script every so often to have any changes made on the mapped drive or data drive's file up to the file staged in the OneDrive library The other potential concern with this is that if this is the way it works in Windows is this the kind of hassle we can expect from using OneDrive when we move up to Windows We know that Windows deprecated user's abilities to manually backup files and settings that they wanted saved into a Mig file using the Windows Easy Transfer tool so they could keep it on their personal drive and that Windows seemed to rely entirely on the SkyDrive Do this mean also when we move to we're not only going to have to manually sync all of our user's files up to OneDrive with copies but we're also going to have to go through the hassle of designing some kind of script that forces the end user to use come kind of convoluted script to select which files and settings they want to capture using the Scanstate or whatever the USMT solution for Windows is instead of using Easy Transfer WE're sincerely hoping for a simple solution for this issue Thanks ahead of time for any information provided on this

I recently bought a new tablet a dual-boot Android Win system My problem is that the OneDrive icon which is supposed to be 10 Selective OneDrive and Win syncing, on the taskbar is not there Supposedly the only way to set up selective sync is to right-click that icon and go from there The tablet has very limited storage so I really do need to sync the folders I need for working mobile Microsoft and the manufacturer are exchanging pointed fingers No help at all I would simply reinstall Win from the disk I burned after upgrading my desktop and using the tablet s Win key but I don t yet have enough confidence in the Selective syncing, OneDrive and Win 10 Win installer to do that The purpose of the reinstall would be to encourage the icon to show up overkill it seems to me at this point The OneDrive app isn t available in Win because the functionality is supposedly baked into the OS The question is whether anyone can show me a different route into the settings to make selective sync work With the multiple ways to do almost anything in Windows I m hoping that this task is no exception Because the cloud icon isn t there to right-click on how else could I navigate to the right place to start I can kludge a solution by opening OneDrive in a browser window and upload download files from there to work on But I don t always have Wifi available In File Explorer the OneDrive folder is empty Maybe this will be resolved by the end of the year because MS has promised that it will restore the full Win functionality of OneDrive in Win I hope so but because I don t know why the icon is missing I don t know if the change will make my tablet work Thanks for any help nbsp

Win 10, HP 570f Pavilion Elite PC, upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10 Sept/2015. Just recently I noticed I have activated or somehow acquired a OneDrive folder. All my downloads, documents and pictures are there in appropriate folders under OneDrive. This is terrible since my wife can just open OneDrive from my Computer Shortcut on the Desktop and view my secrete sites and pictures I've gleaned from the liberal internet (meaning porno sites)!! Everything I've seen or been to is in OneDrive. I use to hide things in different named Folders or moved them to an external drive but now those videos and pictures are duplicated in OneDrive. This is annoying and time consuming to delete items in OneDrive that I didn't want to go there. Can I tell OneDrive to be more selective or not to function at all?

A:OneDrive invading my privacy!

In the taskbar, right click on the Onedrive icon and select Settings. Under the "Account" tab you can either modiefy folders or just unlink Onedrive.

I started Onedrive again and it still wants to sync. As usual it grabs all my internet bandwidth and I can't do anything.

I have checked my Onedrive through the web interface and the mistaken folder is not there.

Hello Good People,
Despite looking around, I don't understand how the sync works.

First, is there a master, so to speak. ie does the cloud version mimic the PC files. ie if there is a file on my PC and not on the cloud, will the cloud get updated? An then, if a file gets deleted on my PC, does that file get deleted from the cloud?

And is the One Drive folder in Users on my PC really an actual folder on my C:\users, or is one of these "smart" folders that is where?

Grateful for any help.

Firstly, Windows 10 does not have "DOS". Apparently, you are talking about command line interface.

Secondly, OneDrive stores all its files in some specific location on your machine. All these files are regular files accessible as any other file. There's nothing special about them. By default, OneDrive directory is 'Users\<Your User Name>\OneDrive'

I'd say stop OneDrive on both computers then go ahead and copy the data over. You can use a big flash drive or your home network. Network is probably better and will not affect your data usage since it should all be within your local network.

Once done, start OneDrive on both and all should be well.

Files can't be uploaded because the path of this file or folder is too long. Move the item to a different location or shorten its name.
I first tried to shorten A LOT but still got the same error message.  Then I moved it to a different folder, but I still get the same msg about the same file name!  How do I "restart" OneDrive uploading when I can't get rid of this message?

I originally setup my onedrive account with my company email address. Since this is really a personal OneDrive account I want to change the email address associated with it. How can I change it without losing the content online or having to re-upload it?
Also I need to remove any references to my company email account from the microsoft system so I don't have conflicts when my company moves to Office 365.

Unfortunately Onedrive is tied to the email address and it cannot be changed, merged, etcWanikiya and Dyami--Team Zigzag

Trying to login to Microsoft OneDrive and I am presented with a completely blank application window whilst logging in - just the title bar of Microsoft OneDrive

No idea what to do to login.

One forum suggested clearing browser cache, which I have done in all browsers, but this did not fix the problem.
I have desinstalled and reinstalled - nothing
I am running a windows 7 service pack 1 desktop linked to a windows 2012 server. I am able to login on other machines with other users and then OneDrive is working fine on those machines.

Have tried doing a OneDrive Reset The OneDrive reset did nothing.
I get the welcome screen, click Next and then get the blank screen.

Looking at OneDrive login credentials with the Credentials Manager.
I do not have anything relating to OneDrive and have no entry marked "OneDrive Cached Credential"

I had my systems set up to store a copy of the stuff I had on OneDrive on the local PC's under Windows 8.1. Since I upgrade to W10 that option has disappeared? Am I missing something? I have Googled and Binged and can't find anything specific to W10 and the W8 explanation ain't there no more in W10! Help set me straight please. I really liked the ability to access my OneDrive Stuff if/when the internet is down. Is there another way to force OneDrive to store a copy on the local PC?

A:OneDrive offline storage?

Have you looked at the top portion of the Start>AllApps at all? I found it immediately with a fast look here since the present copy of 10 on the main(have a secondary as well) build was the Threshold 2 November 11th Update to the Windows Insider Preview 10586 build essentially being the exact same only the TH2 went out as the general update.

If you had somehow not seen that come about with the upgrade a repair install or now better a totally fresh clean install would be optional but not necessary while you would now lose out on the Free 15gb storage for the reduction to 5gb MS put into effect on Monday Feb. 1st!

We have 100 users with Folder Redirection on Desktop and My Documents and with Offline Files function enabled.
Me as and admin would like to with a centrally controlled tool move their files to OneDrive for Business. I am an Admin in Office365 and on our network so I have access to the source and destination.
Are there any useful tools for this task so each user does not need to do this manually by themselves?

I see a folder titled OneDrive in Windows Explorer and I'm not sure how it works exactly. Can someone explain?

A:What is the OneDrive folder?

Hello Ashley,

OneDrive is a cloud-based storage service where you can view, browse, upload, and share the files you saved online to When you save files to OneDrive, the files are automatically available to access or share from any device, even if something happens to your PC.

We have several tutorials for OneDrive, but here are a few below to help learn more about it. Please give them a look through, and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

OneDrive Selective Sync - Choose Folders in Windows 10OneDrive Fetch Files - Add or Remove Windows 10 PCsDocuments & Pictures - Auto Save to OneDrive or This PC in Windows 10OneDrive Auto Save Photos and Videos - Turn On or Off in Windows 10OneDrive Auto Save Screenshots - Turn On or Off in Windows 10

I am creating a new Windows 8.1 image for our organization.  I am de-provisioning a bunch of the built in Appx packages that our users do not need (ie xbox games, food&drink etc). 
Our users use the Onedrive for Business application that comes with Office 2013.  I would like to remove the One Drive (Personal) App built into Windows 8.1 as it is causing our users some confusion.  I do not have the "Uninstall option when
I right Click it, and it is not listed when I run dism /online /get-provisionedappxpackages.
Is there any way to remove OneDrive (Personal) from my image, and only have Onedrive for Business available?

Unlike other apps, you can't remove OneDrive.

I've set up a new Office 365 subscription on my desktop system. I'm gradually moving folders into the OneDrive folder. OneDrive seems to be having a serious negative effect on network bandwidth for the other computers and tablets on my home network. I'm on the 12 Mbps to 18 Mbps level of service with my provider. I'm moving a few gig at a time into the OneDrive folder and letting it sync before adding more. It seems like Dropbox and Google Drive sync faster than OneDrive but I haven't done any measured comparisons. Certainly we are seeing slower web site load times when OneDrive is syncing.
The big issue is that OneDrive doesn't have an on/off switch or a pause button on the sync process. You can change the settings to start OneDrive on Windows startup, and that's all. Microsoft needs to provide some controls. What are other people experiencing?

Hi everybody,

Hopefully someone can help with this annoying issue. At some point shortly after installation I changed the Location of my Documents folder, so it may reside within the OneDrive user folder.

Shortly thereafter I released this was not what I wanted, given that many applications, by default, spout numerous files into my Documents' location. I redirected the Documents folder once again, seemingly successfully, to its original location. Since then a second, duplicated Documents consistently reappears (even after deletion from both the PC and the OneDrive website).

On checking the properties of this Documents doppelganger I can observe that its location is configured still to the OneDrive folder.

I am hoping there exists some register wizardry that might solve this issue.

Thanks in advanced for any help!


A:Documents Folder Stuck in OneDrive

How did you change the location of the documents? If you're absolutely sure you cannot find it under This PC tab in Windows Explorer, then go to OneDrive and right click on the documents folder in there (make sure this is not the OneDrive documents folder, which looks very similar). Select properties in the menu that appears. Go to the Location tab in Properties. In the text box that appears, enter in C:\Users\Your-Username\Documents . This should put your documents folder back in its normal location. This definitely should work, as I did it to my own computer just to check.
