The PC backup completely hosed my MS Office custom template locations and I have been unable to fix them. 

 

Can someone place provide the steps to uninstall this feature and restore my files to back to their original locations.

Hey there @Smokethedrone, I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with this!

 

To disable the backup feature on your computer, please follow the steps outlined at the bottom of this article.

 

In the last step of disabling the feature, you can choose "Keep content in folders on this PC" to move the files that were backup previously back to their original locations on your computer.

 

Let me know how it goes!
