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?

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!
