    To make a long story short I deleted the default folders in my OneDrive Space. I was trying to delete my PC 'Sync Settings' so I could re-image my SP3 back to factory new. I now realize default OneDrive folders have nothing to do with it. So here's my question. Is it possible to restore my OneDrive space back to factory new without setting up a new account? I'm not even sure what are the standard defaults for OneDrive. In my recycle bin I see a Documents, Favorites, Public, and Shared Favorites folder. I don't use OneDrive for storage so everything can be deleted from it.

    Thanks, I actually already found the recycle bin. So here's the folders I show in my OneDrive web application folder. Are they the default folders? I'm not sure where they came from or even what they're used for.

    I believe the default initial folders are:
    - Documents
    - Music
    - Pictures
    - Public

    If you used to use "SkyDrive", you may have:
    - Documents
    - My Music
    - My Pictures
    - Public

    Thanks for your help. I'm coming from Dropbox and I haven't quite figured out OneDrive. Are the default folders important or can you just create any folders you want and go from there. I guess I thought OneDrive was a little more integrated than it is. When I save an Office 2013 Word document it does bring up OneDrive as the default location but not a particular folder. I figured it would bring up the Documents folder in OneDrive.

    You can create the names to be whatever you wish.
