Rename the onedrive folder on OneDrive for Desktop Windows
Please allow the renaming of the folder which OneDrive for Desktop syncs to. I would appreciate the ability to store my sync'd folders/files in a folder with a different name other than /onedrive. Here is my usage scenario:
I am trying to move the onedrive folders of two users of a single desktop PC to the secondary raid array for backup. I would like the paths to be D:\ONEDRIVE_USER1 and D:\ONEDRIVE_USER2. The way it is currently implemented I would have to use: D:\ONEDRIVE_USER1\onedrive and D:\ONEDRIVE_USER2\onedrive.
This is not ideal and I'm sure other users can think of many ways the renaming of the "sync" folder to something other than "onedrive" would be useful. Please consider fixing this limitation.

The 2 biggest issues here are:
1. Names get really long depending on username on windows desktop and company name, drastically reducing the 255 total full path name limit.
Ex.: "c:\users\firstname.middle.lastname\OneDrive - My Full Company Name", generating more than 65 letters!
2. The name always comes with spaces on it.
Please allow this setting on windows!

I have a Queen's university onedrive account, but the ' in the name means that the path does not work in many applications that treat it as an end quote instead of part of the path name.
I can suggest you with one software and that is "Ahsay backup" as i am using this software for my business use , So try it out. Many new softwares i have tries like acronis etc but i guess according to the speed i would 9/10 marks to this software. Use it.
