    Hi, I just purchased an Office 365 account and it comes with 5TB of OneDrive. I currently have my free 5GB OneDrive on my PC. I want to add my new 5TB account. (I think it might be OneDrive for Business but I can't find a download for that.) I would like to have both OneDrive's synced so I can get my old 5GB stuff. I tried uninstalling my old account and downloading OneDrive for Windows (not business) and install and logged into my new account with my email and password. I get 2 accounts my Personal (5GB) and "leverage proactive deliverables" (5TB.) I uninstalled that and went back to the old one. Now when I try to "add" in my new OneDrive in right click > settings > account > "add an account", it says it can't connect to OneDrive and says to retry. My new login (email and password) works on the Office website. I have both currently connected on my OneDrive App Metro, but I want it on File Explorer where I had my old OneDrive (next to "My PC" and "Quick Access" etc...) I only want one OneDrive not two like in my Metro App pic. Then Add/Merge my old stuff. So how do I install my new OneDrive 5TB and merge my old files in? And does anyone have a link to OneDrive for Business? I'm attaching screenshots. Notice "Personal" and "leverage proactive deliverables" in Metro App. I only want one. Also, can I change the name "leverage proactive deliverables" to my email or just blank OneDrive? Please reply. Thanks

    Here's progress but I still have 2 OneDrives in Quick Access and I only want one. And I'd like to rename OneDrive at that location. The 5TB is syncing now. I'll check back later. Here's a pic.

    Hi, any ideas? Does that make sense? Can I get a download to OneDrive for Business? I can't find it.

    Me again...I decided to uninstall my 5TB and go back to my free 5GB. I will use my 5TB in a browser. Unless anyone knows of another way of doing this?

    Doesn't understand what "How do I add new OneDrive ..." means
    1. OneDrive is a Microsoft online service and there is nothing needed to add. Everything depends on what account You use to login. That's all.
    2. Why do You cry, 5GB is only 0.0001% of 5TB and You cry. @No time to spare
