Please don't auto-create the email attachments folder
Please stop with the folder creation!!!!!!!!!!!!
I choose what goes in my drive!
If i wanted a folder called 'email attachments' i would
create one .. its annoying having to delete them everytime i come bk to onedrive
This is now resolved. Thanks for your patience.
Added further clarification on 10/2/19:
Sorry for the confusion, when we said we were done it was for addressing the autocreation of the “Email Attachments” folder asked for in the title of the user voice. A few other auto-created folders are still enabled for certain features in the OneDrive ecosystem.

I agree with Bill Gates... its like a living version of 50 shades having to use one drive...

Taking a while? Taking a while? Douglas, the definition of a while seems to be on a biblical calendar...
ahhhgggggg... this makes me angry... why is this broken? Still?

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.
one year later and still happening, no fix still?

******* 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.

They must have eliminated Doug because he spoke up FOR us poor peasant folks...

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. . .
I grow frustrated and angry with Microsoft

Doug, why are you working with Outlook? It isn't the Outlook teams problem. This is the MOBILE APP TEAM. Get your H1B friends together and get this **** fixed! Disgraceful how long it is taking you guys.

This is a mobile app issue, and the internal (dis)organization of Microsoft can't communicate to fix the issue. Can someone please escalate this internally? I am tempted to start bugging Satya about the dysfunction of his people...
it's been a year and you guys haven't fixed this issue
Angry Guy commented
This is still taking for ever... I don't think its just the outlook team, I think the internal teams at microsoft cannot communicate effectively to eliminate this issue... this is a mobile app issue. I don't even have outlook installed and it does this constantly
