We have an O365 environment with Sharepoint for shared files and OneDrive for redirected folders.  However, on one user's computer, the old OneDrive for Business client will not install and there is an icon in Explorer for OneDrive - <TenantName> where the user's profile folders are properly redirected and show up.  However, there is also a OneDrive link in windows explorer that links to C:\users\<user>\OneDrive (not in use) above the OneDrive - <TenantName> (C:\Users\<user>\OneDrive - <TenantName>).  How do I either completely uninstall the old OneDrive for Business client or at a minimum remove the old link from explorer?  Reinstalling the latest OneDrive client fixed the library locations and default Documents link in Explorer, but there's still the old OneDrive that could cause the user confusion.
