    [GUIDE][HOW TO]Move OneDrive location from C: to SD card

    Has anyone found a workaround for this?
    I have a 32GB internal drive and would like to move my OneDrive location to the SD card, but with no Location tab on OneDrive properties it's posing a very awkward problem - one that MS seems to be ignoring.
    I've upgraded to th_2 version of Windows 10 and STILL no option to move it in the normal way..

    There is a way to do it but the OneDrive folder is actually a special virtual folder that shadows what's in the cloud. If you make your SD card a VHD it will work.

    From the Disk Management console, follow these steps:
    1. Right-click Disk Management and then click Create VHD. Follow the prompts that appear.
    2. Right-click the new disk and then click Initialize Disk. Click OK.
    3. Right-click the new disk and then click New Simple Volume (or select a different volume type, if available). Follow the prompts that appear.

    Then what? How do I physically move the OneDrive folder?
    There's no "Location" tab in properties, and the "Move" icon in File Explorer ribbon is greyed out.
    Still the same problem whether there's a vhd or not...

    Update

    For anyone else who's trying to do this, in addition to the instructions above
    1. The vhd has to be mounted
    2. The Onedrive folder has to be UNLINKED from the Microsoft Account.
    3. When OneDrive is started up after unlinking, it goes to the setup wizard where you can now select the vhd as the OneDrive Folder location.

    After any reboot, does your VHD disk (into microSD card) remain automatically mounted ?

    In order to do this, I had to install a software that changes registry settings to force automounting of my VHD disk into microSD card.

    Hi, I have the same challenge and cannot create a VHD. When I go to Disk Management/Select Action/Create VHD/name a drive location and 2 GB, I get the following error message: The requested operation could not be completed due to a file system limitation. Do you know what this means?
    I am using a ASUS T100 running Windows 10 with the latest upgrade. My SD Card is 32 GB and is formatted as FAT (Is this the problem?)
    Your help will be appreciated.

    So, what happens if I do this and I remove the SD card because I want to get some pictures from my camera or something? Will onedrive think the folder is empty and remove all my files?
