It is clunky and potentially horrific. OneDrive really should deal with it more cleanly.
OK Yarlen. Yet more OneDrive woes with the Mod directory in Sins.
With Windows 11, it appears you cannot have a directory within the OneDrive directory tree that is not backed up by OneDrive.
Clearing the checkbox on the Mods-Rebellion v1.85 folder in the Accounts tab of the OneDrive client now means that those files will not be downloaded to you machine. OK, fine I get that.
However, it also prevents you from creating a directory of that same name.
If you do OneDrive automatically renames it by adding your machine name to the directory name in an attempt to resolve a mismatch in the directory structures between the local filesystem and that on the OneDrive server.
I cannot see where this "feature" can be disabled.
The cynic in me just sees this as a sleazy marketing scam to convince you that you need to give Microsoft some £, $ or € to increase you online OneDrive capacity.
So is there something that I have missed?
Now, with the Advent of SinsII around the corner, I probably don't see Rebellion getting many changes.
But could we at least have a configurable Mod location for SinsII as OneDrive seems to be a disaster in this particular case.
