    Onedrive question

    Im new to Onedrive. Im using default settings and Im backing up Desktop, Documents and Pictures automatically. I want all the files in my This PC Documents folders to be available for normal access on my PC like normal just the way they were before setting up Onedrive. Is that what will happen but in addition I will get a copy of the This PC Documents folder backed up in the cloud?

    Before Onedrive, To back up my This PC/documents folder I have always just selected all the files/folders in my Documents folder and simply copied and pasted everything onto a USB flash drive. I still want to do that to back up my Documents folder in addition to the Documents folder being backed up in the cloud.
    Can I still do this as I have Files On Demand enabled in Onedrive settings or do I have to select Always Keep on this Device to be able to do this? Looking now at my This PC/Documents folder all files/folders in my This PC/Documents folder have the availability status saying available on this device (green tick inside a white circle) but they arent selected to always keep on this device
