    It's called syncDriver for OneDrive and can be used with Local Accounts on Windows 8.1 on the desktop however it's not been actively in development since Windows 8.1 Preview, version 1.2 was release at the end of July 2013 according to Softpedia download link but the author did change the name from syncDriver for SkyDrive to syncDriver for OneDrive.

    The resource usage memory and CPU is a about the same as OneDrive for Desktop the last time I used it, the program can be set to not run at startup for manually launching to sync files when needed.

    Hello Candy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Which option did you try?

    Do you have a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8.1?

    Double check to make sure that you did all the steps in the option for your 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8.1. If you miss one, it will not work.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{8E74D236-7F35-4720-B138-1FED0B85EA75} was not found in my computer. Remove_SkyDrive_from_This_PC was downloaded, and used. Nothing different.

    The OneDrive folder is not in "This PC" by default. The remove .reg file is just an undo if you had already added the OneDrive folder in Option One.

    Since you never added it, that would also be why the registry key was not there.


    Were you wanting to remove OneDrive from your navigation pane instead?

    I must of done something wrong


    I have a 64bit machine. @ #3. I downloaded from there. I had no choice on saving the file it was Run or close the window, so I ran it. OneDrive is still on my machine. Any suggestions?

    Hello Steven,

    Just to clarify, this will not remove OneDrive from the navigation pane. It's only to add/remove from "This PC" window.

    If you were wanting to completely remove OneDrive from Windows, then you could use this below to do so.
