How to Turn off Automatic Sync in OneDrive


auto sync

If you want to remove a PC from OneDrive, first make sure all the files 

you need are synced to that PC. Do this by opening the OneDrive 

System Tray icon. Select Settings > Account > Choose folders

Check the box to Sync all files and folders in OneDrive, especially 

if you unchecked any folders previously. 

This action will download any files from OneDrive that don’t already 

exist on your PC. This process will take some time, but you can check 

the progress by right-clicking the OneDrive System Tray icon to see how 

much time is left.

Once all your files are backed up to your PC, right-click the OneDrive 

System Tray icon and select Settings. At the Settings tab, uncheck the 

box to Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to Windows

Then click the Account tab and click the Unlink this PC link. At the 

prompt, click the Unlink account button, and now your PC will no 

longer sync with OneDrive.
