    Is it possible to change OneDrive folder location to my microSD drive D:\OneDrive on Windows 10?

    I think I just did something really bad! I was using my local D:\OneDrive folder locally without the OneDrive client for a few months so there are quite a few files that has not been synced to my OneDrive account. When I followed the instructions above, I think I chose the option to restore from my OneDrive account to D:\OneDrive and now all the new files that I added locally that's not synced to my OneDrive account has disappeared! How do I recover them?

    Do not do anything else on the SD card. Download a free program called Recuva and run it to see what it can find. If very little was written to the disk you may be able to get most of it back.

    Ok thanks, 3 hours estimated time to recover all. Think I'll specify OneDrive to sync to an empty D:\OneDrive folder then copy all my files over this time..

    Report back the final results. Sounds like you should get some back.

    Recovered but forgot to check restore folder structure so it put everything in one folder.. I guess I'll just sort it out manually

    thanks!
