OneDrive cloud vs local OneDrive

It is important to remember that when a connected device makes changes to a file, OneDrive will register the change when it syncs and make it available to all access points. Meaning that if you make a change within the cloud (a new file, editing, deleting, etc.) the changes will take effect on any other devices you access with your credentials.

The cloud version of OneDrive is a great way to access, modify, or remove your files even when you are not using a device with Windows 10 or Office 2016 installed on it. The OneDrive cloud gives you access to your files from anywhere anytime as long as you have internet access.

Files from your local OneDrive folder will open just as they would from any location in the File Explorer. For (or it is just as easy.

OneDrive synchronization and storage

Each time you sign in to your computer, OneDrive will sync your files automatically. You can also choose to manually upload files or folders to OneDrive or at any point. However, keep in mind that if you delete a file in your local OneDrive, that deletion will carry over once synchronization has been completed.

Please allow your files to sync onto your local machine. This may take some time, depending on the size of your files. When the sync is complete, you should be able to see your OneDrive – UNT System folder on the left side of your Windows Explorer program of your office desktop computer.   It defaults to Favorites, but you can move it.
