This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off "Notify me to load files from my other accounts to this PC" with OneDrive for your account in Windows 11 and Windows 10.

You can use OneDrive to sync files between your computer and the cloud, so you can get to your files from anywhere - your computer, your mobile device, and even through the OneDrive website at OneDrive.com. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder in your OneDrive folder, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted on the OneDrive website and vice versa. You can work with your synced files directly in File Explorer and access your files even when you’re offline. Whenever you’re online, any changes that you or others make will sync automatically.

If you have multiple accounts, OneDrive can notify you to load (sync) files from your other accounts to this PC. This allows you to sync files across multiple accounts.
