Hello,

unfortunately the Office 365 Support cant not solve my problem.

I need to download 7000 files with about 200GB in size. I cant use the OneDrive Sync option as my C: drive on the server is not big enough.
The download function does only support 200 files at once which is documented here: Link to Microsoft Support

How do i get my files back? I cant go into every folder and download them separately.

    Hi @Joshua Bohlmann

    Do you have any other drive expect C:drive? You can change the location of your OneDrive folder.

    1.Right click OneDrive > Settings > Account tab > Unlink this PC. The OneDrive setup screen will appear, ignore it for now, but don't close it.

    2.Move your OneDrive folder to your preferred location.

    3.Go back to the OneDrive setup screen > Sign in > Change location
