    I do not know for sure, but it is entirely possible (and reasonable) that the 'online' settings won't remove a file already on your local system. So try Wiztree to confirm what is actually on your...

    I will stand to be corrected, but the size of the Onedrive folder depends on whether it is the original 'source' of the data or not: if you are looking at the device the data was created on, then the...

    Well, if you are happy with the current behaviour... for myself, I wouldn't wait for MS to fix what may be a bug, but may be just a glitch in your particular setup. Do you not have a backup already?

    That may be tricky given the time difference, plus remote connecting is already slow (in my limited experience) due to the response times of the network connection. Your symptoms are fairly generic,...

    I don't know why, but your two-off 1.81TB WDC drives appear to give 2.1TB of two-way mirror storage - which may be magic, or may explain why 300GB (0.3TB) are 'free'. Some accounting error?
