    Information OneDrive is a cloud-based storage service where you can view, browse, upload, and share the files you saved online to OneDrive.

    The OneDrive Fetch files feature allows you to access all your files on a PC from another computer by going to the OneDrive website. You can even access network locations if they're included in the PC's libraries or mapped as drives. When you browse a PC's files remotely, you can download copies of them to work on. You can also stream video and view photos in a slide show.

    To access files on your PC remotely, make sure the PC you want to access is turned on and connected to the Internet. OneDrive also needs to be running on that PC, and the Fetch files setting must be turned on.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off using OneDrive to fetch files on your Windows 10 PC from any other PC.

    OneDrive is easy to access if you have all your files there.

    But you can access your local computer files with "Fetch files" from the online OneDrive. Do you have "Fetch" turned on in the OneDrive settings on the PC you are trying to access? If not then Fetch will not work. The computer has to be turned on also
    but maybe it could be woken up.
