Latest Windows 8.1 Update Messed up SkyDrive

Hey all,

After installing the latest updates to Windows 8.1 (12/10/13), my "Documents" and "Pictures" folder were renamed to "My Documents" and "My Pictures" like old times.

I would love to change them back because now it looks weird having Videos, Music, My Documents, My Pictures, etc.

Also, as a result of this update, my SkyDrive which is linked to these Documents and Pictures folders, changed to Make Online-Only. After, checking Make Offline, I now have to re-download all 3,000 files. This is extremely frustrating and I would love to know how to avoid this from happening again in the future.

Any insight is much appreciated.
