Please stop automatically creating folders (like attachments, pictures, documents) in my OneDrive.
It is so annoying, every time i delete the folders, it pops up again. If i need a folder, i will make it myself. This is the only thing that keeps me from making OneDrive my top cloud storage solution.
Since MS does't move it's ***, I got around this by making the unwanted folders invisible. If you're on a Mac, rename the folders adding a "." (period) at the begining of the file name (change Documents to .Documents). The folder will still be there, but you wont see it anymore.
My God, this is TERRIBLE. Microsoft I've used you for years on OneDrive. I use you across my Company. If you can't fix this issue I'm quitting one drive and trying out other options :( I don't want to, but I can't stand this!
jesus f christ please stop this madness, we bag you!
Why nothing changes? So many requests to move somewhere with the issue.
I can't delete the empty 'Documents' folder at my Onedrive.
It keeps reappearing every morning.
The support guy tried to help me but in the end send this:

I apologize for the inconveniences this issue has caused you.
It turns out that the issue is by design, as you are not able to delete folders like Documents and Pictures etc.
Since the issue is by design, I would suggest raising it with our product team using our user voice channel, please use this link.
Once again I'm so sorry for the inconveniences.
Thank you and stay safe!

I totally agree, it is very annoying when permanently the folder 'Documents' is automatically created.

Give your customers control of their OneDrive!
Please aloow me to control folder creation in OneDrive--- I see this has yet to be resolved. all the tips online to go do this or that do not exist in Windows10 ----- simple easy turn on, turn off feature ---- couple lines of code should do the trick.
I've used Microsoft products from DOS 3. All PCs in my home and office have been Microsoft-driven.
Now, however, there is a growing number of Linux machines.
This One Drive stuff is NOT helping.
Please, stop auto creating these folders!
I have been thinking there should be a way that I’m not aware of. However, I see it indeed is a problem which Microsoft hasn’t been capable of handling for quite a long while. Hilarious.
I do wonder if any one of the thousands of employees of Microsoft ever use their own products, at least for once, before launching them.
Automatic folder creation is a freaking joke. Whoever came up with this idea, doesn’t belong anywhere close to a product/service department where good user experience delivery matters.
Attachments, Documents, and Photos folders are created automatically no matter how many times you delete them. They are just there, always annoying and making the experience worse.
I’m paying for a cloud storage service where I’m not even allowed to customize my folders. This could only be offered by Microsoft. Keep up the good work guys! Consistency matters, right?
I agree, Microsoft is like anti king Midas, turns everything into ****
Had domination with EI, Skype, now lost!
Dudes, hire a UX designer, FFS

This is such an obvious problem and one that is so easy to fix. OneDrive should be one cloud-based drive that users can tailor to their needs. I don’t use either Attachments or Documents, yet have to see those folders taking up real estate. While I occasionally share a file or folder, I don’t need a public folder. So why does Microsoft think “one size fits all” in terms of mandating certain folders that must appear even when they’re neither needed nor wanted.

GOODNESS Microsoft. Why can't we just keep ONEDRIVE seperate as an ONLINE DRIVE. Why do you assume that we want to sync our files by default? STOP CREATING DUPLICATE FILES AND FOLDERS THEN CHARGE US FOR STORAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #evilbigcorp
Totally agree with this, so annoying and unnecessary
