        I ended up with hiding all **** folders on PC and pretending "not seeing them" via web interface - works so far.

        I hate these folders with a burning passion. Is there a single UX expert anywhere on the team? Stop. Adding. Folders. I. Dont. Want. Or. Need.

        Ideally need to be able to block ALL unauthorised folders appearing.. 'Attachments' is the biggest culprit for me.. please fix this :)

        8 Documents folders have appeared, unwanted, in 3 days, no matter how hard I try to not have them appear. I have selected the folder I want in my one drive. It's either the Documents folder or the Attachment folder. Please stop this.

        Yeah right - using a word 'working' is an insult to everyone that actually does work.
        One year and this nonsense still goes on.

        So a question to you YOU Douglas Pearce:

        What have you worked on for the past year that actually did something useful for people that pay your salary? And it's use the users, in case you have not noticed that.

        18 months since numerous complaints about the 'Attachments' folder, and what happens... another folder called 'Documents'! The overwhelming majority want these forced folders gone. Get rid of them please!!

        Great... In OneDrive for Business I’m now getting an extra “Documents” folder next to “Attachments”. Nice job, sh’theads!

        I can't believe this is taking so long! Stupid m$ can't get their **** together...

        And another year is past...thanks for listening to our customer requests M$...great job.

        Wow, how long does it take to provide an update which can remove a stupid feature? Apparently more than a year

        PLEASE stop adding useless stuff to our private environment!! How can I get rid of this?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can't believe it's been over a year since this thread and they still haven't made this optional. If it wasn't for this being offered for free from Uni, I'd abandon OneDrive in a heartbeat.

        Please let us remove this folder and stop automatically adding it back. It is always empty. It is always there. It is always annoying. We will never want this. We will never use this.

        I am religiously fighting the auto-creation of this stupid folder. I won't let you win MicroStupidsoft.
