    I just got some great technical advise from Microsoft on this: Here's what I did:

    1.) Got into my Office365 Admin and change my company name to a [much shorter] acronym.
    2.) Exit OneDrive on my PC. [Right-click OneDrive icon; Exit]
    3.) Log out of Office365 portal.
    3.) Sign back in to OneDrive on my PC.
    4.) The OneDrive sync folder now uses the acronym instead of the old long company name.
    4a.) OneDrive now syncs all of the files from the cloud down to the new location on the PC.
    5.) Got back into my Office365 Admin and changed my company name back to the [and much longer] full company name.

    I rebooted, and the change appears to be persistent, but I will have to repeat this procedure should I choose to 'Exit' OneDrive.

    It's worth it, though, and I love it.
