  1. How to copy files from PC to OneDrive with no syncing enabled


    Hello,
    Windows 10 OneDrive seems to only want to operate as your primary file storage repository with your PC being a potential backup for OneDrive. I do not want to use it in that manner. How do I use OneDrive to simply copy selected files and folders from my PC to OneDrive without any Syncing enabled? If I deselect 'Sync files and folders' in OneDrive settings, it seems to disable the OneDrive link in File Explorer. Ideally I would like to have a backup setup to sync OneDrive with my PC so that OneDrive mirrors my PC...not the other way around. However, I would be happy with just figuring out how to copy files from PC to OneDrive using File Explorer.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.
    Best Regards,

    :)

  2. Syncing from PC to OneDrive

    HELP

    I do not want to have the main storage be OneDrive. I want to have master files on my PC and the OneDrive synced as a backup up. Everything I am seeing looks like I am required to move everything to OneDrive first and then sync it to my computer so that
    the Master is in the Cloud.

    I work with rather large files like MS Project and Excel (on DSL/WIFI) and saving to a cloud location takes additional time to save and update it on the cloud. I have no interest in it always saving to the cloud but only when the computer is unused.

    Please advise how to do so.

  5. Thanks Ztruker.

    Does this mean there is no way to copy files using the OneDrive tree structure showing in File Explorer?
    Again, this is with syncing from Onedrive to PC disabled.

    Yes, you use File Explorer. All I gave you was the path to the OneDrive folder on your hard drive.
