How do I uninstall odrive?



Please follow the steps outlined below:
Be sure to back up any unsync’d files before uninstalling!


  1. Exit odrive

  2. Uninstall odrive using the standard windows uninstall method (add/remove programs).

The Windows uninstaller has been updated to cleanly uninstall all odrive components. The only thing remaining will be a backup of the odrive folder.

Please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Exit odrive.

  2. Open a terminal session (type “terminal” in Spotlight search):

  3. Run the following command in the terminal session (copy & paste the entire thing into terminal and hit the Enter key):

cd "$HOME" && rm -r ".odrive" && killall Finder;mv "odrive" "odrive_$(date +%Y-%m-%d:%H:%M:%S)";cd "/Applications" && sudo rm -r "";cd "/Library/Application Support" && sudo rm -r "odrive";cd "$HOME";

This will:

  • delete ~/.odrive program folder
  • restart Finder
  • rename the default odrive folder in your home folder, if it exists, to odrive_[current date and time]. You will find this in the root of your home folder.
  • delete /Applications/
  • delete /Library/Application Support/odrive

The command will ask for your password as part of cleanup. This is to ensure that proper permissions are available when removing the odrive folders from /Applications and /Library/Application Support

Linux instructions would be nice too. Is it really just deleting folders?


Hi @p_ingram3541,
For Agent, as you said, it is just a matter of removing the folders you made during install, if you were installing using the usage guide instructions here:

Those folders will be:
[User Home Folder]/.odrive-agent
[User Home Folder]/odrive-agent-mount


Thanks for the clarification Tony. I figured out my issue was installing partially as su which was resulting in never seeing any .cloudf folders to sync. Once I changed the location of the sync folder (under my daily driver user) everything is working.
