    How to remove un-sync OneDrive files from my decide


    Hi everyone,
    I have a problem with my tablet (Surface).
    It has 32GB of total memory but half of that space is occupied by the files of OneDrive which are automatically stored on my tablet as well. I tried to un-sync it right clicking on the OneDrive icon and stuff like that, but nothing changes.
    I would like my backup information to remain synced, I just really need to have that space on my tablet drive to be free again.

    Does anyone know what to do?

    (I couldn't figure out in which section to write this..!)

    Hello Gnottino,

    Check to make sure that you have the files saved in one of the OneDrive folders, and that the files and folder the files are in set to be "Available Online Only".
