Different pathname for the file opened in Quartus Prime Lite Edition


I have been opening my projects on Quartus through "This_PC" (underscore because my professor stated the pathname cannot have spaces) -> Desktop -> myproject, but every time it opens, the pathname is through OneDrive, instead of This_PC. Now I have not had any problems with my files opening up through OneDrive on Quartus before, but yesterday when I compiled my code, a couple of files in my project were getting deleted (I got a notification that those files were deleted from OneDrive). I would restore those files and compile again, but the same thing would happen. OneDrive was also deleting multiple files when I would simulate my project. The files that were getting deleted were files that I did not alter. They were provided by my professor, and to be honest I do not know what they do. My simulation results were slightly off, but I could not figure out if it was due to the deleted files when running my project or if it was due to my code being incorrect. This was very frustrating, so I am trying to figure out how to open my projects through This_PC on my computer instead of OneDrive, hoping that will solve the issue. Can anyone inform me as to how I can do this?

I would never have a project on Onedrive.  Just copy the project directory to your local drive (C, D, etc.).


Is the suggestion from sstrell helps in your case?
