Anyone know how to delete the extra one drive folders/files without losing all of my one drive files off the cloud too?  Yes, I have tried to delete one of the extra folders and it wiped not only the one drive files off my hard drive, but the ones off one drive as well.  I had to get support to restore over 600 gbs of files.  Luckily they were able to do so.

 

So am I stuck with all this extra crap or is there a safe way to get rid of it?

 

Help please, if you can

Thanks!

Backup the stuff on your hard drive.

Then log into OneDrive on the web and delete what you need to from there?

This didn't happen till I did a full wipe of my hard drive and re-installed windows.  When I set up one drive it gave me three separate folders all of containing all of my files.

I don't know much else about OneDrive.

Have a look at these links:  https://www.google.com/search?q=multiple+folders+in+one+dire&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=multiple+folders+in+one+drive

Hope that it helps!
