    Two Onedrive folders under Users\Name Profile


    I have two Onedrive folders under my User files. One is uploaded to the cloud the other appears to do nothing. I started using 32 bit Windows 8.1 on the same machine then installed the 64 bit using the same microsoft username/email. Is it possible to determine which Onedrive folder is active and get rid of the other without losing any files both offline and online?

    I think x64 version of 8.1 is more trouble than it is worth. I have switched back to the x86 version and the user folder only has 1 Onedrive folder so I shall probably just use the 32 bit version from now on. Not only that my video capture and printer work on the 32 bit version!

    Hi there. Is the one you think that doesn't work empty? Is it named OneDrive.old by any chance? I think it was early on in 8.1 x64 when it was still called SkyDrive I had two of those in which I deleted with no problem, but I kept them in the garbage bin for awhile until I knew it was safe to completely delete.

    You may want to try that, but make sure you back everything up and make a restore point or system image before you do.
