    how to seperate Device Backups of two laptops


    Hello,
    After the installation of Windows 8.1 on an Asus laptop. I used the email and the password that I'm using on Sony laptop.
    Then I was asked to choose in Onedrive whether to sync my settings separately from Sony laptop or to keep it on,(it's Device Backups).
    now, I need to sync settings separately, how can I....,?

    I keep mine in different folders. As for you, you will need two different Live accounts, to keep the user Remote info separate.

    but even with one account I was asked whether to combine or keep the sync settings in the same backup device on Onedrive like in the picture below I made the first choice, if I could go back and make the second one.. https://www.eightforums.com/attachmen...ll_setup-1.jpg

    It is easier just to use two different Live accounts, so that stuff does not get mixed up between them.
