    OneDrive icons

    I have just moved 192GB of photos from a separate partition to my OneDrive and OneDrive is up to date
    I can see the files via ok and the files show the glimmer marks icon
    I can see the files via OneDrive on my PC and the files show the green tick icon
    However, the OneDrive folders on my PC still show the sync icon
    The OneDrive system tray icon appears correct and if I hover over it it says 'OneDrive Up to date', see screenshot

    I have reset OneDrive but no change
    Should I be worried?
    What is happening?
    I want to reuse the partition that previously stored the photos so wanted to be certain all is OK before I proceed (I have backed up the part with Macrium just in case)
    Oddly two folders do show the green tick icon but one folder is empty, see screenshot

    Here's my suspicion:

    I appears by the icons in the 'Status' Column in your Explorer Window that you have 'Files On Demand' enabled.

    So it's possible it's still pushing that large amount of files up to the 'Cloud' in those folders it's considering 'New' ( Glimmer Icon in the browser )..

    The 'Green Checks' mean they are available locally until they get to the 'Cloud'.

    But the fact that they're new I would imagine OneDrive is now uploading them where under the Status column they'll then get the 'Cloud' Icon until you ask for one, at which point it will download that one and change it to a 'Green Check'

    In the folder that's not empty with the 'Green Check', do all the files have 'Cloud' icons?

    Can you see your internet traffic? Is it uploading?
