How to Make OneDrive the Windows 10 Default Save Location
« on: April 23, 2018, 01:49:45 PM »
The free OneDrive storage is 5GB.   (See OneDrive storage plan and billing questions - OneDrive)

With 5GB free storage, see How to Make OneDrive the Windows 10 Default Save Location for specific folders.

OneDrive is fully integrated into Windows 10 and with your Microsoft account, it’s free cloud storage for the taking. It is a great way to back up your photos, docs, and other files. While you can always use the app you’re working in to save your work to OneDrive, maybe sometimes you just don’t want to think about it. Here is a look at how you can set OneDrive as the default save location for all data or just specific files.

Hmmm, not sure I would want a cloud storage device as my default drive location for any folder. That would assume you have 24/7/365, uninterruptible access to the Internet. Is there an ISP that reliable and robust?

I think (if I trusted cloud storage) I would still go for an auto-sync option where the default location would be on a local drive, but then those folders I designated would automatically be synchronized with my cloud storage location.

But I guess that's just me.
