I love OneDrive and use it every day. It’s tied to my Microsoft Account, which I use to download Windows Store apps. Data from modern apps are synchronized across all of my PCs, so I can start a task on one PC and finish it on another. OneDrive syncs my PC theme, background, WiFi passwords, IE favorites, and more. My Windows Phone automatically uploads pictures to OneDrive so I can share just a link to a photo and don’t have to send it as a large attachment. You can even do this with iOS and Android apps. In short, I can’t live without it.
However, I want to use it a bit differently on my work PCs, which are bound to an Active Directory domain. Microsoft has two related products: OneDrive and OneDrive for Business. I use OneDrive for Business to sync files on my work PCs. I don’t want to see my regular OneDrive files there, because I don’t want to accidentally save a work file on my personal OneDrive. However, I still want all the other benefits of OneDrive and my Microsoft Account on my work PCs.
Here’s how I disabled OneDrive file storage. Only follow them if you’re absolutely comfortable with them and fully understand what you’re doing.
When complete, gpedit.msc will look like this:
