Remove pernamently OneDrive source file from Microsoft Photos app

Minh Hoàng Hồ 1 Reputation point

In the Microsoft Photos UWP, the app is automatically importing OneDrive file, and the temporary way is to remove the file from the app settings. But when I restart the system, it automatically imports the OneDrive file again. Do you guys have a workaround to completely remove the OneDrive source file in the app?
