I know I could google it, but figured I would ask here first, well my game files drive is under onedrive's database and need to disable it for those folders. The whole it is changing my game settings back is getting old, still owe craptacularone an apology because my mystical numbers were from onedrive overwriting the files setting my DLS settings from Quality back down to balanced giving me extra frames in CP 2077.

    I know this may not be the answer you're seeking, but OneDrive to me was a real pain and I uninstalled it.  During periodic updates, MS keeps trying to reinstall the program.

    +1... same here. I dont think you can really stop it cause the system will fight with you constantly to enable and use it. I removed a ton of stuff and firewalled a bunch of things off beyond that also. 10 is such a pain.
