FL Studio and problems with Microsoft Account

I finally figured out why FL Studio installs into OneDrive, and that is because of the nature of the Microsoft Account. Windows automatically use OneDrive as the location for desktop, documents and so on, if you choose to log into Windows via a Microsoft Account, rather than a PC-spesific account.

Because FL Studio insists on installing files other places than you choose to install, this, but in my view, crap happens. I hate when a program spews out files in every direction, that I might have to deal with at some point. This is not progress. It is tedious and counter productive.

What happened to me is that I recently had to replace a drive with my OS, in this case Windows 10 on it. On that, one drive was Uninstalled. However, when installing a fresh install of Windows 10, OneDrive is automatically installed and when you log in with your Microsoft Account, it automatically downloads everything you might have in the cloud. One way to fix this is to delete everything on your OneDrive, but if I forget to lets say uninstall it before I install FL Studio, it will again contain those files and that is what happened. A lot of old files from an older FL Studio was downloaded from OneDrive when I logged in, creating conflicts with the newly installed files.

Another problem with this, is that it will need to upload and download these files for every computer I log into. I have computers I use, which doesn't even have FL Studio installed, or I am using someone else's computer. For instance, downloading Flex presets will heavily increase the size of this folder. I see mine is 1.2GB of data. I don't want to sync that every time I log into a computer.
