    Default Desperately seeking OneDrive

    I just got upgraded to 1tb Onedrive space and thought it was great for the cost. I am a long time Google Drive user and was excited to switch to Onedrive.

    I have now spent many hours trying to figure out how i can switch from Google Drive and am completely dumbfounded (emphasis on the dumb). It appears that in order to replicate my tried and true folder structure in Onedrive i have to manually create the folders and sub folders and then bulk copy files into the corresponding folder in Onedrive.

    I have HUNDREDS of folders and sub folders and this would take a LONG time to do.

    I am really struggling with how this is even possible. Am i missing something? is this the only way to truly synch a file structure? I dont understand how anyone can really use this product if they dont recreate their folder/file schema. It almost sounds like MS is saying to just copy all your files up to Onedrive without folders?

    Any help is greatly appreciated because i really want to use this product but cant seem to find a way to efficiently.

    Hi cmupstate, Whatever file structure you have in your PC File Explorer under OneDrive will be replicated. Please check various methods of Adding your files to OneDrive . Since you are on Windows 8.1 , OneDrive is built-in. And you need to sign in with your Microsoft account to browse your OneDrive and keep your files and settings in sync. When you sign in to a PC with your Microsoft account, you're automatically signed in to OneDrive with that account.You can get to OneDrive files for a different account by going to its website.
