Windows 8-8.1 OneDrive/SkyDrive Klasöründen Kurtulun

Windows 8 ya da 8.1 kullanıyorsanız aşağıdaki adımları takip ederek OneDrive ya da SkyDrive klasöründen kurtulabilirsiniz.

Step 1: Stop file-synching from the settings menu

In the Windows 8 Metro menu, if you type in “SkyDrive” you can access its settings menu by clicking on “SkyDrive storage space”. In each of these sections you can customize all your sync options, such as disable the default use of the service, automate your photo album synching, or limit how your machine connects to networks to perform syncs.



Even if you’ve disabled all of these options, you’re still far from shot of SkyDrive, meaning you’ll have to go on to make a series of additional, rather more complicated changes.



Step 2: Delete SkyDrive from your file manager

In the left navigation bar in Windows Explorer, alongside your computer’s multimedia folders, Favorites, and network computers, you can see a permanent button for SkyDrive. To remove it you need to go to the Windows registry editor, which you can access by typing “regedit” in the file finder. Next, you have to manually access the filepath below:



Then, right-click on the folder ShellFolder and you access the Permissions options. Once inside, you need to click on the “Change” button at the top alongside the “Owner” field. There you need to type your username followed by “\Users”. For example, if your username is Anthony you’ll need to type “Anthony\Users” in the field.


That done, you can tick the “Total Control” box for your user in order to be able to make changes to the registry keys included in that folder. Now you’re going to apply the changes you’ve just made, go back, and double-click on Attributes. There you’re going to change the value in the “Valuable information” field to zero. After restarting your computer, SkyDrive will have completely disappeared from your file manager.
