I had Windows 8 installed on my laptop and SkyDrive folder on a local drive. But I needed to update to Windows 8.1 Pro edition, wich I did. After that SkyDrive screw my files up because of this integration into OS. I was very dissapointed and decided to remove it. Than I discovered that it's not possible, so I followed these steps How to disable SkyDrive integration on Windows 8.1 completely. But after reboot I have SkyDrive folder appearing once again (empty).

How can I make the madness stop?

Thanks in advance!

  • I delete it, but the folder is recreated when I reboot the computer

When you remove skydrive from your pc it will stay there but only as a local folder.

Just select it and hit delete. Shut down properly (or restart) and your issue will be resolved.

  • doesn't work, I deleted it countless times and after that rebooted my laptop... no effect
