        Why is this folder appearing in my onedrive? I delete it, it comes back. I delete it, it comes back. I am at war with this folder.

        @Tobi No man, hahah, you're funny... this is just where customer ideas and requests go to die a miserable slow death...

        It would be fine (and necessary in my opinion) to have an option to turn off the auto creation of predefined folders. Every time i delete the two folders "Dokumente" and "Anlagen" (german names, might be "documents" and "attachments" in english), they reappear again. That is an absolute annoyance and prevent me from having a clean folder structure and a good overview.

        Now they are requiring email to vote... they don't like our angry voting...

        This is crazy... its like its more aggressive now. The folder shows up constantly now, all the time, I delete, it appears, I delete, it appears.

        ******* stupid microsoft... get your stupid app team together and fix this stupid bug. it is a BUG. FIX IT YOU STUPID POOOOPIE HEADS.

        I will add my voice to this. I use One Drive to store my files and to hold backups, and I have a very strict way to sort, organize and index things - you could say I suffer form "Digital OCD".

        AND THESE DAMNED FOLDERS JUST MAKE ME WISH TO SPLIT THE HEAD OF THE PERSON WHO INVENTED THEM WITH MY AXE, JUST LIKE I WOULD DO WITH A MELLON.

        So, Microsoft, please remove these **** pre-formatted folder structure YOU think is best for us, users, because in the end, you don't really care or understand our needs.

        Your folders or our folders, we both know you will keep seeing, indexing and using our personal information to make money with - Windows 10 looks like a virus disguised as an OS - so at least let us have things the way we like with our files.

        Thanks!

        At lease give your poor peasant folk an update Douglas Pearce. My guess is Douglas has moved on to a more with-it company...

        Hear, Hear. . . Just one more perplexed, astonished, and frustrated user adding his small, tiny, insignificant voice (as far as Microsoft is concerned) to the growing discontent amongst the maddening crowd. . .
