    Hi All,

    I am hoping for some advise. I am currently running a macbook connected to OneDrive via the desk top app. I am about to do a reformat to clean the HD up of stuff, and what I am going to do is stick Windows 10 on it via Boot Camp. I want to see what W10 is like before spending money on a Windows powered Laptop or Surface Book etc.

    I have a lot of work saved into my Desktop OneDrive folder as one level of backup, and what I would like to do is disconnect the desktop link but not have the folders and files delete from OneDrive itself. I am trying to avoid coping my entire OneDrive folder onto an external HD when I reformat the Mac HDD.

    Can anyone advise if this is possible or do I need to have that Desktop-Online link to keep all my files.

    If the files you need are in the onedrive folder, then they are being synced automatically to the cloud :) Head over to onedrive.live.com and check..

    As for stopping the sync, I would say right-click on the icon in you icons tray and select exit..

    Or go extreme and disable it completely https://support.office.com/en-US/art...8-6efb09f944b0
