    A workaround is to move these folders (attachments and documents) into another folder. In may case, a folder called temporary, where I usually put temporary files. This does not prevent these folders from existing, but it get them out of my sight.

    Thanks for NOT fixing this. If people wanted such a folder I'm fairly sure they'd create one themselves. Instead, MS creates something nobody seems to want.

    Typical Microsoft response: "The issue has been resolved", after having done NOTHING.

    I just moved files around and had to re-link my OneDrive which has no files or folders in the cloud right now, into a folder that had no files or folders in it, and immediately it created an "Attachments" folder and a "Documents" folder.

    But no, obviously this has been resolved, because very clearly I did not just WATCH these folders GET created JUST NOW....
