    One Drive This PC Only vs OneDrive

    When configuring OneDrive, what is the difference in results in saving Documents and Pictures to This PC Only or OneDrive?

    The Folders selected to sync with OneDrive will be uploaded and accessible on my 2in1 if This PC Only is selected.

    What is different between these two configuration Options for OneDrive?

    If you save it to OneDrive it will be available to you on any computer connected to the internet. If saved to This PC it will only be available to that computer and if it is a shared drive only to the Computers on your internal network

    I have both my Desktop and 2in1 configured as This PC Only. Files that are to a OneDrive folder will appear in the same OneDrive folder that is on the 2in1. There is not file sharing configured, nor is there a Home Group set up.

    Is this behavior different than what you are describing? Of course, both computers are signed in under the same Microsoft account.
