Files in Windows\syswow64\config\systemprofile\AppData\local\Microsoft\Onedrive

New Contributor



A colleague has reported that her C: drive is getting smaller by the day.

This is because of files that are getting stored at location windows\syswow64\config\systemprofile\AppData\local\Microsoft\Onedrive. At one stage up to 66 GB. We have managed to delete the files and free up 60 GB. After that the files are growing again in this map.

What causes this behavior and what can I do to prevent this?

Thanx in advance for your support.

Back up the person's data, delete the profile, reboot, delete the c:\users\username folder, reboot again, and log in as the user.

Make sure OneDrive is configured to save files in a particular location.
