    I managed to sync OneDrive on my Windows 8.1 PC with my Windows 7 laptop. I was only interested in syncing 4 folders from within my documents folder on my laptop. On my Windows 8.1 PC I noticed that they'd synced into a documents folder on my SkyDrive folder in the C-drive. Stupidly I decided to try and relocate these to my documents folder and now the whole documents folder with all the sub-folders on my PC are in OneDrive. How can I reverse this process and get all the folders out of OneDrive and put the four folders I need to sync back into my SkyDrive?

    I just tried that but it said that the destination folder was the same as the source folder.

    I tried that as well but you can't rename the Windows documents folder! The whole of my Windows documents folder is now in my OneDrive and I need to get the whole lot out. Once that's done I'm hoping I can redo the OneDrive setup but with only the four folders I need to have synced.

    Are you using a app or are you working with a browser?

    I'm using Windows 8.1 on the affected PC and first got OneDrive to work by clicking on the App on the Start Screen, but from then on I just worked in File Manager. I right clicked the OneDrive icon in the list on the left of the screen and went to properties. From there I clicked the location tab and then changed the location from SkyDrive to Documents and then all the problems started. The four folders I need to have synced were initially in a Documents folder in SkyDrive and once I had changed the location the SkyDrive Documents folder became a sub-folder in my main Windows Documents folder and from then on the whole lot was in my SkyDrive. I just want to put it back as it was!

    Can't you do a system restore/recovery?
