OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud service that connects you to all your files. It lets you store and protect your files, share them with others, and get to them from anywhere on all your devices.
By default, OneDrive uses a feature called Files On-Demand to save hard drive space on your computer. Files and folders are shown to you but only downloaded when they are opened. Specific icons are used to indicate the sync status of files or folders. Use the guide below to understand what these icons mean.
