Store Settings and Recents in OneDrive for Business

In recent months, Microsoft has greatly improved OneDrive for Business by including Known Folder Move and Backup - meaning all desktop, documents, pictures (and their sub-folders) - and you can move others manually, can follow you to any/all of your desktops by being stored in OneDrive for Business.  This also makes everything mobile accessible.

I have already used some of the enterprise deployment registry settings but ideally all settings, including what lives in AppData, etc., can be stored in a safe storage location within OneDrive so that your settings and recent updates to toolbars, etc., follow you from computer to computer when using SnagIt.

Also, it would be ideal to have a scheduled automatic backup of the snags to a location within OneDrive as well.

I'm not a OneDrive authority, but I think you could automatically place files and/or folders in your local OneDrive folder using scripts or batch files. Then run the scr or bat file as frequently or infrequently as you like.  I use Google drive, same principle and I move any changed excel files to the cloud via windows task scheduler every hour.
If you create a new scheduler category,  windows will perform the task requested, as often as you like.
For example, I just created a OneDrive folder under "Task Scheduler Library". Because its in the scheduler root, nothing else will effect it. YouTube can get you going quickly with either scripts or batch files.
