    I am using Windows 10 on my laptop and am trying out OneDrive. I attempted to transfer my files from GoogleDrive but it filled up my hard drive [as well]. What am I doing wrong?

    @Rod Lloyd Don't sync all your onedrive folders? Upload from your google drive on your computer to one drive online first... remove google drive syncing from your laptop then sync the one drive stuff?

    Thanks for the reply. How do I upload from Google Drivel. Right click on a folder in google drive does not have an upload option.

    @Rod Lloyd, from your computer > Move/Copy your files from Google Drive to a Folder on OneDrive (i.e. Folder name = File From Google Drive), just like you would move/copy those same google drive files to another Drive or Folder.

    It sounds like you have double copies of everything, one in google drive and one in onedrive.

    First, in your icons near the clock, bottom right, it might need to be exposed clicking the little ^ icon... look for the onedrive cloud icon, right click that and goto settings.. Make sure you're on the "Account" tab, second tab, just to the right of the settings tab. Click on the "choose folders" button. Uncheck sync all folders option, or uncheck all the folders. You want to get all the onedrive stuff off your computer.

    Give it a moment while onedrive syncs and removes files from the onedrive on your computer.

    when done goto onedrive.live.com, log in... open your google drive folder on your computer, and drag everything to the web browser onedrive. or if you know which ones you need then drag only those ones.

    When it's done, find the google drive icon like the onedrive icon and I guess find a way to disable syncing on google drive folders... when you know you have no more google drive folders stored locally, turn onedrive folder syncing back on.

    Hope that helps
