You can useÂ OneDriveÂ toÂ sync filesÂ between your computer and the cloud, so you can get to your files from anywhere – your computer, your mobile device, and even through the OneDrive website at OneDrive.com. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder in your OneDrive folder, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted on the OneDrive website and vice versa. You can work with your synced files directly in File Explorer and access your files even when youâ€™re offline. Whenever youâ€™re online, any changes that you or others make will sync automatically.
You can also back up your important folders (your Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders) on your Windows PC withÂ OneDrive folder backup syncing, so they’reÂ protectedÂ and available on other devices.
This tutorial will show how to enable or disable automatically pause OneDrive syncing when on a metered network for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
