Default using onedrive

Sorry, I know this is likely easy, but I've spent far too long trying to figure this out. I have Office365. everything seems pretty easy and intuitive . . . except Onedrive.


when I open Onedrive one my W10 PC, I get what appears to be File Explorer open to a Onedrive folder. How do I select folders to be uploaded to Onedrive. How do I schedule backups?

Have you tried a tutorial on Youtube? Here's one I found.

OneDrive is a poor backup. It syncs files to the cloud.
Selecting Folders to Sync, Right Click the OneDrive icon in your system tray and then Select Properties. Under the Account Tab is the Button to Select Folders.
I do not Sync the My Documents folder. I reserve that for local files. I do have a Documents folder on my One Drive for items I do want to keep Synced.

Thanks for the reply. As for backup, I'm going by the microsoft web site . . .

[emphasis mine]
"A reliable cloud STORAGE provider offers businesses many features to avoid data loss, including built-in redundancy, failover, BACKUP, automatic logging, monitoring, and more"


I believe I've found I can't add folders to onedrive. I can only select from Onedrive's folder list. I suspect I CAN add subfolders to, for example, Documents

Adding a folder to OneDrive should be easy.
I am able to go to File Explorer. "OneDrive - Personal" is listed under "Desktop" and clicking that and then right clicking in the list area, select New, Folder.
I believe the Sync settings will default to Keep on This Device using that set up method.
I think when you add a folder through the WebPage, the folder will be an on demand folder .

Probably could have worded that better. I have a folder on my PC I have titled "Communications." I want to add that to Onedrive to be sycned along with all the other folders. If I understand what I've read, Onedrive restricts me to only those folders Onedrive lists.
I'm investigating creating a folder in Onedrive>Personal Vault>Communications and have that mirror C:/Communications. Don't know if that will work or not
