OneDrive suddenly filling HD is serious issue, Microsoft should respond by posting easy solution & placing tools in app
One day my C drive is just fine. Plenty of free space. Then after 2 updates of OneDrive in 45 days I suddenly get a message that my drive is critically low on space.
Considering how 95% of my progams and data (data that I save on my system) is saved to a separate drive with a terabyte of space I was baffled.
I checked properties of the C drive amd yep, it was almost full. I found that there was one folder dominating the drive space. The OneDrive folder.
Somehow every file including images, videos, music, etc., saved to my OneDrive account from all my devices had not just synced but downloaded onto my C drive folder.
Research showed Microsoft suggestions to use the app and uncheck some box or select use offline or whatever. That only works if OneDrive as an app can open on your PC. It only works if the little blue cloud shows up in the other apps you're using. You know, like Word, etc.
When in the name of Common Sense Technology and User Reliable Experience will companies stop fixing **** that isn't broken. When will they leave their environment and venture out to experience random blind testing on unknown devices (meaning random volunteers) before upgrading or releasing anything???
When will all of the companies stop writing code to ***** with their competitors at the expense of ultimately screwing the users?
Does anyone remember when basic Explorer worked just fine? So many early programs worked just fine. I've been involved with computers since 1976 and today's goal of shoving 10 lbs of **** in a 5 lb bag doesn't work.
Cloud storage is just that, a place for storage off your hard drive. A place for remote access. Their shouldn't be any script that mistakenly or without secondary confirmation sync 100's of gigabytes of files to a device.
Maybe if Adobe owned Microsoft it would work better.
Thanks again for the frequent BSOD's.
