OneDrive on new laptop won't point to Business OneDrive

I have O365 Business Premium and a lot of data in the Business OneDrive
I have a new Win 10 Home laptop and can connect to that Work account OK.
HOWEVER, in the Users\dmacl\Documents\OneDrive, the what is displayed is the Personal OneDrive generated automatically.

How can I get that reference replaced with the correct one pointing to the Business OneDrive?

Yes. I have done that from the new laptop. I can upload or download files. But if I click Sync, it gives me a popup to some obscure sync too.

Do you see two cloud icons, one in white color (onedrive - personal) and another in blue color (onedrive - business) in systray (lower right of the task bar) like the one in the link above?

If yes, please double check the location below.

Users\dmacl\Documents\OneDrive\ (personal)

Users\dmacl\Documents\OneDrive - your corporation\ (business)

Good question, Jackie. I see NO cloud icons in the systray, either displayed or hidden,.

(On my other Win 10 computer, I have a blue cloud icon  in the systray and all is well)

Download and install onedrive client from the link above and logon with your o365 account afterwards.

Hi Jackie,
