I'm trying use OneDrive pro to sync files to my local computer. I'm able to sync the first library to the drive that i specified. When i attempt to sync another library OneDrive defaults to my c:\user\<username> and i'm not given the option of syncing to the drive used for the first sync.

You're saying that on your first library sync, you modified the location, but now when you try to add a second library it goes to the default?

You can only modify the sync location before you sync the first library.  After that, you need to stop syncing all libraries, and then add them back once the first one is changed to where you want it to go.

So it seems strange that its not going automatically to where your first one went.

However, since OneDrive got switched from SkyDrive, it's possible that the update screwed up the saved location.  You'll have to unsync and resync as described above to resolve it.
