How can I completely get rid of MATLAB Drive

76 views (last 30 days)
I used MATLAB Drive for a project I was working on for a team remotely. I now want to get rid of MATLAB Drive from both my personal laptop and their work computers. I have uninstalled and deleted the folder as suggested in:
But I still have a MATLAB Drive folder. I want to completely get rid of this so there are no issues with syncing and because they now want to continue using the folder for other work.

After following the instructions in that answer, you should just be able to delete your MATLAB Drive Folder locally (it isn't being synchronised anymore, but the uninstall doesn't delete it because it contains your files).

Ah, yes, ok, I see. So once you've completed the uninstall from your laptop and their work computers, you'll still be left with a folder which looks like your MATLAB Drive Folder (even though it isn't being synchronised anymore). Inside this folder you should find a hidden folder called ".MATLABDriveAppData" and a hidden "desktop.ini" file if you're on Windows. Removing both of these should restore the folder to its original non-MATLAB Drive state.
