Add the following registry entry (although this appears to be called out as not working on a number of different blogs i have tested and worked without any issue):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive
"DisableFileSync"=dword:1

NOTE: The OneDrive icon will still appear on
