AnswerediCloud Photos is Incompatible with OneDrive Backup

Is there a fix for the “iCloud Photos is incompatible with OneDrive Backup. Your iCloud Photos folder is now in your home directory.” error in Windows? I'm using the Windows Store Version of iCloud on a Microsoft Surface Pro 7 with Windows 11 update (11/24/22). The issue persists, hindering file opening speed from the Windows desktop. No option to move the iCloud Photos folder seems available.
