San Location does not show OneDrive

Postby pybely » Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:42 pm


When browsing for folders to be scanned, the "Scan Location" list does not seem to include "Cloud locations" such as Microsoft "OneDrive".

It is possible to "drag" a folder from a "file explorer" window, but it would be nice to be able to do it from the DupCleaner's window.

Note that I am not referring to files in the Cloud itself, but to the files that are ON the local PC and are synced to the Cloud storage

Yes, it doesn't currently show special folders in Explorer such as OneDrive, Dropbox or the Windows 10 Quick Access. As you say, these can be dragged from explorer or entered manually.

Something we can look into adding!

You can get there from the local path. Open up your C:\ drive (or whatever you use), expand [Users], expand your [Windows Login Name], then you can select Dropbox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business... they all show up in the same location. Edits made locally to this area sync back to the cloud. I fired this up against my dropbox this way and it scanned and allowed me to delete files using the tool.
