    Hello
    So, yesterday i restored my computer to factory setting and decided, while being there, to install windows on my SSD. But now, I just realised that some of my files, like those suposed to be on this path :
    C:\users\Nocto\documents\...\
    are not there anymore, they're rather there :
    C:\Users\Nocto\OneDrive\Documents\...\
    From what I've heard before, onedrive is cloud storage, but I don'T want to use that...
    So, if im not wrong, can you please tell me how to move my default folder from the onedrive to normal one, like the first path i wrote there.
    thanks :)

    Reinstalling Windows and unchecking the OneDrive checkbox is the only method I can find that doesn't break stuff.

    If you dont use a microsoft account with as your pc login then one drive will be off unless you add credentials to it. I never use a ms account in windows 10. all accounts are local only.

    you can change your existing account to local. Most people have a ms account version as that the default selection in windows setup. i remember seeing local account in the bottom left in small text. I bet future windows wont have a local feature. wont it suck to have to have an internet connection to log in

    Yeah, it's suck so bad that it would make people stop buying Windows. Microsoft would have to be very stupid to commit suicide like that.
