    Files times in the OneDrive cloud are 4 hours ahead.


    For a long time all my files that I upload to OneDrive have a timestamp that is 4 hours greater than my local time. I'm on EDT. Everything is set fine on my machine. Is there a location option for OneDrive cloud?

    That would be Redmond time then. Blame it on MS. It appears to be a long known bug, since 2012. Bug with timezones on SkyDrive - Microsoft Community

    First of all Redmond time would be -3 hours, I am +4 hours which might be Greenwich time. Also the link you posted seems to involve photos. It's all files that have incorrect modified times.

    Does anyone else notice different times on the OneDrive cloud and your local OneDrive folder?

    As I have mentioned, this is an error that has been long known about. It is UTC for what they use on servers. UTC defaults to GMT.
