    Long ago, I unsynced and uninstalled OneDrive. During a recent bug issue with some editing software, the developer stated it was a problem that some files are going to C:\Users\flint\OneDrive. (C:\ is my system drive.) And that it was odd in general.

    The folder looks like this:
    https://i.fspark.media/P8uQpxj8

    All the files within this folder seem to synchronize to and from other folders, eg the Desktop. If I get rid of a file in this folder, it gets rid if it elsewhere on the computer. (So it doesn't seem I can just delete it.)

    Further, some of the earlier mentioned video editing software is getting installed here and it's causing errors.

    Can someone help me with this?

    Looks like OneDrive was syncing those folders then when you uninstalled it still kept that same file structure. You can try re-installing OneDrive and seeing if you can remove the sync paths from there or this post here might send you off in the right direction - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...b-b8b8c5409943

    Hello Bla1ze,

    Thank you for the heading me in the right direction! After snooping around per the link you provided, I reinstalled OneDrive, 'unsynced' the service, then uninstalled it. There was a little data lost in the process, but nothing major in my case.

    All said, problem resolved. Thank you for your help!
