Windows 10 Pro - How To Sync PCs To OneDrive

Hi Experts,

When I installed Windows 10 Pro I opted to not sync with any other devices and therefore I have not done anything with it.  Now want to activate the syncing so hopefully I can reference it through my Hard Drive so I don't have to use the Web Interface which I find totally lacking in functionality.  I also don't know where it does / will reside within my Hard Drive.

Could someone enlighten me?

Microsoft would like you to use known folders move to sync your user folders to Onedrive.. it is simple to setup using Onedrive and is pretty much transparent to the user .   Since my primary computer has 40TB of files It is not practiable for me to sync this to OneDrive (at my upload speed it would take several months and OH the Cost..)

For a few TB it is quite useful

Hi Nobus,

When I access the link and try to follow it my experience isn't like what is being specified so I'm totally lost.

I would like to start from scratch but I would need to totally remove all OneDrive apps, folders etc.

I have a OneDrive (not my own) that has been shared with me and I would like to also delete it.

How do I delete all of these?
