    OneDrive backedup files...


    hello!

    why are other files that i uploaded in OneDrive dont show up here? but when i check in the site, they're there.

    the other files where bunch of .reg keys and a .flv file.

    Because you have not selected those other files to be synced to your local computer.

    See this tutorial: OneDrive Selective Sync - Choose Folders in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Yes, you should have subfolders in OneDrive which show which ones are to be synced. You have none. Should look like this

    "i excluded them coz they'll occupy space on my HD."
    Good that you realize these folders are separate from the same folder names in This PC. OneDrive only backs up what you put in these sub-folders, not the corresponding This PC folder. For example, if you want all your Pictures backed up, they need to be Copied to the Pictures folder in OneDrive. Cheers.
