Holy frick I hate onedrive. I just lost 10 years of irreplaceable photos and documents because this piece of shit forced itself into my computer, hijacked my Documents, Pictures, Desktop etc folders, copied that shit to their servers and removed my local copies, and then when I deleted their shit, all my shit is gone and the windows file browser is throwing errors whenever I try to open those folders.

it's all fricking gone. I never asked for this shit on my computer, I didn't want it to replace my normal fricking folders with some spyware bullshit, I never wanted fricking anything to do with it but fricking MICROSOFT integrated it into the OS, like cortana and internet explorer, and FRICK YOU if you don't like it. turn it off, it turns back on. forcefully remove it, and it breaks system critical shit.

I have repeatedly disabled onedrive since getting my computer, and when I found a onedrive folder in my user directory while cleaning up files, I deleted it without a second thought. now, it turns out that all my pictures and documents were actually inside that folder, and not in my actual pictures or documents folder.

no, none of it is in the recycle bin on my computer or on onedrive

as for file recovery, it got back about 10% of what I lost. I'm feeling very emotional. frick this spyware software. microsoft forced this shit onto my computer, stole my files and moved them around without permission, and then fricked me in the ass. holy frick I'm so mad

      yeah that's what all the microsoft shills say online.

      >it works fine if you use it properly!
      maybe it does, I don't care. I didn't want it, I didn't ask for it. it's malware. sure maybe it's useful for certain applications, but not for me, otherwise I might have chosen to install it on my computer.

      it's really fricked up how it integrates itself into the file browser, and suddenly your /pictures folder is actually /OneDrive/pictures but nothing tells you this until it's too late.

      the shills also like to say
      >it's not that complicated
      >read the fricking manual

      yeah that makes sense...in the case of something you chose to install and integrate into your system. it's totally bullshit in regards to something that forced itself into your fricking computer. it's a fricking virus and I hate it

          yeah, if only. Lesson learned.

          100% the first thing I disable when installing Windows.
          It's counterintuitive how to use it, windows explorer opening on it instead of your local area is bad, and the windows explorer screaming at you if you do not have a folder name onedrive, when it doesn't complain about any other imaginary folder not existing, is atrocious.

          If Microsoft actually wanted user friendly cloud storage, it should be opt in, purchasable, and not smother all your files, nor delete local copies when you delete "cloud" copies.

          It's a nightmare for my older and younger relatives who don't understand how computers work.

          This, fricking thank you. And it's also bullshit how it presents itself as a backup service, when it's actually just mirroring your shit onto their servers. It's not a backup at all.

          This did actually happen with Google Photos to a family friend. One of her friends was insisting on using Google Photos albums, and she finally caved and downloaded it. She’s a little on the older side, and Google is sneaky with the “Keep your local files or delete everything and move it to Google?” questions, so that’s exactly what happened. Apparently had to spend a day carefully downloading it back to the way it was and getting it off Google’s cloud.

          Calling support isn't going to help me. I disabled OneDrive a while back, and kept using my local storage as normal. Then I found a onedrive folder while I was cleaning up my storage to make some space, and just deleted it without thinking because I don't use it. But it turns out, since Onedrive subverts traditional folder directory, all my shit was NOT in the normal folders (which still exist) it was actually in the onedrive folder. My explorer is throwing errors now because when you try to open "pictures" or "documents" it doesn't actually go to those folders, it goes to "onedrive/pictures" etc. It's absolutely fricking bullshit.

          Never happened tho but nice bait

          how is it bait. this is a very common story and anywhere you go where people talk about onedrive, you'll find it.

          I stopped reading here:
          >and removed my local copies
          Doesn't happen by default ever. You're just lying.>

        if you didn't have backups elsewhere it's still your fault. If your HDD died randomly you still would've lost them and yes, you're a moron for just deleting the one drive folder without bothering to see what was in it.

        Also did the green checks and blue clouds in the file explorer not give you the hint to see what it was all about?

          They inundate you with so many of these popups that it's not unreasonable to think he could have clicked it by accident with no option to cancel it. It's a blatantly user-hostile practice that you'd only be defending if you were a Pajeet working in Redmond.

          The other thing to consider is that the average user will have no idea what keeping the files local even means - they just see a place to save it and they save it there. Google, Apple, and Microsoft KNOW this but they also want to mine your data and make you rent it back from them forever, so they're happy to do things like this.

          The OS-as-Botnet model has improved security, sure, but when the OS itself is making modifications to the system that are contrary to the user's interests, does it really matter?

    WHY does Microsoft push onedrive so hard? I can see its use for certain applications, but for the average user with a single computer, it's actively harmful. the only reason for it is so they can copy all your shit to their servers, but I'm pretty sure they can do that already. So why? just to encourage people to purchase more microsoft products?

    As I've already mentioned a few times, the drastic change is how it hijacks the traditional file directories and inserts itself as a middleman. The old folders still exist but by default they are not used, because everything goes into the onedrive folder instead. I didn't know that until now, because I disabled onedrive a while back because it kept throwing errors about insufficient storage and trying to stop me from saving shit locally, telling me I needed to buy more storage. This is predatory design.

    OneDrive exists as an early version of making your OS into a subscription based service. They want you paying a regular fee in order to store files.

    imagine how many computer illiterates out there get tricked when Windows pops up saying you're out of storage, but for only $20 a month you can have basically infinite storage, and all your files will be safe and secure forever. This, when the user still has plenty of local storage. This is how OneDrive works by default.

          All your original files will still be on your pc, Onedrive makes new directories in c://users/ but relinks them for your user account when you look in Documents to the onedrive ones

          If it really has overwritten your files you should still be able to get them back with recuva

          thanks, but it's not like that. I disabled onedrive a while back, it was causing problems. Then yesterday, while cleaning up my files, I found a onedrive folder and deleted it. Turns out that many of my files were being saved there instead of the old default directories (which still exist). Yes, it was my mistake not knowing how onedrive works, but I don't care how it works and I never fricking wanted it on my computer, never (willingly or knowingly) used it, and was misled by the native file browser, where the sidebar for pictures, documents, etc doesn't actually go to those folders, but to a subdirectory within the onedrive folder.

          You could say it's user error, and to an extent it is, that's true. However this shit is designed in such a way that it (intentionally IMO) obfuscates what's actually going on, and where your files are being saved.

      What I'M doing? I saved my pictures in my pictures folder, and my documents in my documents folder. Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, instead made copies of those folders within onedrive, made the explorer redirect to the onedrive directory instead of the actual folders (which still exist), and did all this without asking or informing. There's absolutely no reason for this level of obfuscation. It's not even incompetence on their part, but an actively malicious attempt to have greater control over your computer and to get more money from you.

          The OS lied to me about where my files were being kept. You can keep trying to change the subject, but it's not going to work. Literally millions of people have had similar problems with this onedrive garbage. It is designed to frick you unless you pay them.

            Why be like this? When you open the "pictures" folder, you generally expect it to be /user/pictures right? Not user/onedrive/pictures. The OS did this by itself without informing or asking.

            Read what? Read the documentation on a service I didn't install, didn't use, didn't ask for, and disabled 2 years ago, yet still kept popping up on my computer? Where does it say that the explorer now automatically redirects to a onedrive folder instead of the actual folders that it has always used? Why are the folders named the same? Why is this fact hidden from the user? Why change something so fundamental without asking or informing?

            >expect it to be /user/pictures right? Not user/onedrive/pictures
            So now you're admitting that if you had used the command line for everything you could've avoided this scenario altogether?

            Why wouldn't you double check what is inside a folder before deleting it? Who does this shit?

            I figured it was just a remnant folder from when I disabled onedrive two years ago. It turns out, despite disabling it, my default directories were still being redirected into that folder. Stupid mistake, I know, but there's no reason all my shit should've been in there in the first place.

            yes, onedrive is malware, and yes, malware often creates folders and files on a computer. It also likes to hide its presence and do hidden redirects to make itself harder to find and eliminate, while doing its thing without the user's knowledge. it also likes to pretend that you got rid of it, while still hiding somewhere.

            yes, the window that said I'm deleting the onedrive folder. I read it. What I didn't know is that the OS has put all my shit in there instead of the pre-existing folders. Why would I doublecheck the contents of a folder I hadn't (knowingly) used for 2 years? Yeah I get it, I should have been more careful, it was me who made the mistake, but the fact that this can even happen is ridiculous. It is disguised and integrated into the system.

            >I prefer the GUI tho
            Okay, so what do you want? Full control via the command line? Or to work with an OS that has a GUI for the uninitiated like yourself?

Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, instead made copies of those folders within onedrive, made the explorer redirect to the onedrive directory instead of the actual folders (which still exist), and did all this without asking or informing. There's absolutely no reason for this level of obfuscation. It's not even incompetence on their part, but an actively malicious attempt to have greater control over your computer and to get more money from you. The average user does not need or want this "service" but it's still integrated deeply into the OS itself, even if you disable it.
        So in your mind what would be better? An OS that you would make your own directories, name them yourself and place them where you want them? Would it be a great os if it had cmd line baked in with Robocopy so you can /MIR your boot drive to your secondary drive then /MIR that to your external back up drive?
        Oh shit, guess what? You can do all that on Windblows. You don't have to go anywhere else to have a basic OS.

        You'll always be blamed for not having 110% knowledge of the systems you're using and it brings together the worst kind of shill: the one who does it for free.

          Its a place for low_t types to piss and moan like a group of barren hens. It got tiresome a long time ago but there is some genuinely good info here from time to time.

            I guess I'm old but that seems like every other board now. An endless stream of low effort shit with some hidden diamonds here and there.
            I really miss some of the other chans, especially double chan.

    >10 years of irreplaceable photos and documents
    Why must people always act so melodramatic when they lose data through their own idiocy? If it was actually irreplaceable, you would have a working backup. What you actually lost was a bunch of shit you only ever intended to keep squirreled away and maybe passingly look at once in a blue moon, like a parent keeping a shitty ribbon their kid won at an elementary school science fair.

      actually, I liked to get drunk and look through the old pictures when I'm feeling nostalgic or missing old friends. It was irreplaceable, and I was a fool not to make backups. Not to mention, all my professional related documents from work and school, but honestly I'm far less concerned about that. Losing my years of IQfy images and OC is a bigger concern than the documents, but the pictures hurt the most. It wasn't just old shit I didn't care about.

      Really? The two file recovery programs I used said most of it was unrecoverable, because I downloaded a massive file after deleting the stuff (that's why I deleted it)

        There should be a OneDrivePictures and a Pictures in your user folder. You probably won't be able to see them with explorer. If you didn't delete anything from your user folder it should still be there. Just boot up a linux live stick. Doesn't cost you anything.

    you mean the folders show your files but it's just streaming stuff off the cloud? you must be moronic if you've never figured it out when you're disconnected from the internet or maybe you never had your internet disconnected and that's understandable but who the frick uses onedrive? and why did you delete the cloud one without checking your local copy?

    but why? you knew they copied your shit, why did you remove your local copy?
    >and then when I deleted their shit, all my shit is gone
    but why? why did you delete your cloud copy? you could just move your local copy to other random folder on C:// or some shit and it won't start syncing. also that's like the first thing you do when you get a windows pc, disable all that cloud shit, it was there back in windows 8, they called it skydrive, and onedrive/skydrive would take all of your wifi keys and uefi/tpm keys and sync it to the cloud so the NSA can just unlock your home network or home PC when you're not around.
    now that you learned the hard way, I hope you get the lesson.
    >I have repeatedly disabled onedrive since getting my computer
    turn off the stupid updates. it is designed so the NSA will be in your home every time you receive a magic update which flips your settings.

    First thing i noticed upon exploring Winhoes 11 was that Onedrive is shoehorned into user files.
    I quickly turned to the registry editor to scrub it out completely and redirect everything to local. There was a far easier way to do this, I found out later, but it has been smooth sailing since. Also disabled Start Menu ads, really simple.

        Yes, but the One Drive bin is on the website. He might find everything there. I upload my personal pics and vids like OP (but I also upload them to a nextcloud instance just in case). You can find whatever gets deleted within 30 days and recover it. However, I've seen that at times when files get moved instead of deleted, do disappear without trace. Happened to a friend who moved a bunch of graphical assets out of the OneDrive folder, didn't lose the files, but OneDrive didn't report the files again, lost the storage space, and the bin didn't show them.

    After reading the thread, OP is just moronic. OP deleted the OneDrive folder that was saved locally on his machine where he was saving his files to instead of choosing other directories.

    The first thing I did with OneDrive was remove it from my PC. No way to accidentally save to that folder, even though it works just like any other folder. Ironically, if OP knew how to use OneDrive, all of these deleted files may be able to be recovered by downloading them from OneDrive if they were uploaded there as OneDrive should check the OneDrive folder if the program is launched. Seeing how OP is a techlet, and OneDrive was probably on startup, it likely was syncing to his OneDrive folder making backups of his files.

    OP says that he is unable to delete OneDrive. SKILL ISSUE. It's very possible to remove it entirely from Windows. I've even done the harder task of completely disabling and removing Windows Update and the processes that reactivate/reinstall Windows Update. Needed to take over Admin from TrustedInstaller to do it but that shit is nuked from my PC. If you know how to give yourself Admin over everything, you can do whatever and MS can't stop you. But it has been more difficult to do with each iteration of Windows.

    OP should invest in external hard drives and copy all of his files to them to make a backup. I haven't liked Best Buy for a while, but if I need an external hard drive, I can get a 5 TB for under $200 same day as I have a location only 15 minutes from me. Sadly they are the only store in my area that really sells anything tech, but if I don't want to order one online I can go there and pick one up and start to copy my files over in under 30 minutes instead of waiting for shipping.

    ALWAYS backup your files onto another hard drive before deleting shit to make space.

      yes, it was my mistake, but see this image (

      Which one of these links do you think leads to a onedrive folder, and which ones do you think lead to normal, local directories?

      )

      foolishly, I thought that it would only save my files if I selected the onedrive directory, and the others would be normal/local. that was not the case.

      Thinking about it logically, if I can't do something with the OS, than it doesn't just fricking work. Even if the issue is due to lack of a program.

    The whole OneDrive thing is just moronic and confusing to normgays. I gave some private tutoring in programming for a student last year and he used windows. When he went to the toilet, I just closed and disabled OneDrive. He came back and couldn't find his files that he put on the Desktop. We searched for a while and it turned out even the fricking Desktop was part of gayDrive. Incredible. But he didn't lose anything. He just started that shit again and it synced everything back.
    Even to him it was news. He didn't even notice that every file was synced to Microshit servers and it wasn't even his real Desktop.
    This is literal malware, you are right in that, regardless of the stupid mistake of deleting something without first checking the folder.
