Oh yeah, OneDrive is still trying to connect to the old extra account that I deleted every time I restart this machine. Let's see if I can tell it to stop doing that....

NOPE! You can uninstall it completely, but if you want to tell it to stop connecting to one of several accounts, you need to LOG INTO THAT ACCOUNT FIRST.

Yeah. The account that doesn't exist anymore.

*sigh* At least it's only a problem when the system restarts & I have to close the extra instance of OneDrive.

AHA!

The main answer didn't help, but further down in the thread, it turns out there is a ResetOneDriveApp.command or ResetOneDriveAppStandalone.command hidden in the Contents/Resources folder of the OneDrive app package, which you can find by right-clicking on the app and choosing Show Package Contents.

It completely resets the OneDrive config, so you need to set up sync with the account that *does* still exist, but that's both easy and fast.
