    Hello Seven, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you have backups of your PC on your OneDrive, then you should see them listed at the Microsoft OneDrive link below.

    https://onedrive.live.com/Options/DeviceBackups

    In addition: OneDrive - Delete Sync Settings for Windows 8.1 PCs

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    You would need to double check that you have your sync settings turned on, and turn on "Back up your setting for this PC" option. It is by default though.

    Sync Your Settings - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    Did you verify the PC?

    Microsoft Account Trusted Devices - Add or Remove

    If this is PC that you just recently installed or used Windows on, then it may take a bit to show up.

    Q: This is working with System Image Backup ? because from what i saw on OneDrive Settings does not look like

    i am hoping that OneDrive is saving only necessary things like profile and any other useful settings without need to use System Image Backup
