Move local OneDrive files vs. downloading all again
OneDrive created itself in my Users folder by design. I decided to move it to another partition. I unlinked it and then reconnected, choosing the partition and folder I preferred. Rather than just moving my data files from the previous location to the new one on my disk, it downloaded all the files again from the cloud, which took hours. Then I realized that was not the best location and moved them again, requiring more hours and hogging up bandwidth. This is inefficient. I am still learning where the best place is for my files, and now I am reluctant to move them again. This kind of operation is much easier with Dropbox or Google Drive, where I can designate a new folder to sync to with ease. Why so difficult? Plus, all of my files are still in the original locations. Can I delete them with confidence that they were all downloaded correctly?
