Got another good one today....

The sad thing is that people will believe this, click on it, sign in, and then have their accounts zeroed.  SMH.  

 

And I'm not sure what a "link bellow" is, but I suspect it's the sound made by a link in a chain when it finally gives up and lets go.  I'm sure it's a very sad sound.  😛

That's exactly what a link bellow is.

 "link bellow" 

LOL. Got a good laugh at this. 

 

Thanks for sharing, Gabe! Hope it prevents people here from opening it.

My solution......I don't use OneDrive and avoid cloud services in general on satellite internet.

I don't use OneDrive myself, but I can't seem to be able to disable it.  Edit: meaning it's always syncing with the cloud.  Does anyone know how to disable it? Edit 2: found something at support.office.com

Cheers, @BirdDog! That's the one I had found. Seems pretty straightformard (or as straightforwards as Windows can get).

Good advice. Keep telling my wife that Google Drive apps eat bandwidth like crazy.

 

She uses it for work and spends hours and hours editing things on-line. Keep reminding her that it's preferred if she downloaded, edited, then re-uploaded when done. And then she keeps going into the same thing over and over, making matters worse.

 

Her on-line lesson plans work like that as well. 🤨

Here the spousal unit and I both use Google Drive, but only online. We haven't downloaded the apps so as to avoid the silly syncing.

Same, here.  That's another one of the reasons I sort of laughed when I saw this.  I've never set OneDrive up, nor even signed into it.  I immediately disable it on my PCs, and if it can be uninstalled, or at least quasi-uninstalled, like it can with the latest revision of Windows 10, I do so.   Before it could be uninstalled I just disabled it.  

 

With that said, though, I do have Webroot for my antivirus, and it is cloud based, but the amount of data it uses is minimal, as there are no definition updates to download.
