    OneDrive Overflow?

    Is there something I need to turn on or turn off so that my OneDrive doesn't build up a whole list of connected computers that have logged in (all just me) that i then have to go in and clear out for OneDrive to work?

    I may be particularly dense tonight, but... Huh? I don't have any idea what you mean by a "list of connected computers".

    Graham, if I log into OneDrive on the net, and click "PC's" over on the left column, I see a listing of any "computers" that have been / are logged into OneDrive, specifically the one login I have. So apparently, every time I log into Windows it connects to OneDrive, which is good, but it does not log out without my explicit instruction to do so. That means that over several days I build up a list of each connection made, and I have to go through, individually, and delete the connections.

    So what I believe I am looking for is an automatic log out to offset the automatic connection that occurs at login.

    Ahhh, on the net. I was trying to figure out where on a computer you would see something like that.

    I believe that list are PC's that you have marked in settings "Let me use OneDrive to fetch any files on this PC". I don't believe that those entries represent PC's currently connected.

    Graham, I have amy (one) PC set to default to the PC itself, not to the OneDrive. I think that it is purely a case where OneDrive (on on the Net) doesn't recognize that the computer is "gone" (disconnected" and therefore tries to maintain the connection.
