How to synchronize and share files using the original drive in Windows 10

OneDrive, Microsoft's cloud storage service, can back up personal and business files online. It is a built-in feature in Windows 10 that allows you to synchronize files from your Windows 10 PC to your cloud and your Windows PC. If you install the app on your smartphone or tablet, you can sync it. The original drive syncs cloud files to the Mac as well. 

It is also convenient to collaborate. You can share files in the original drive by sending a web link to the collaborator. Here are some basic things you need to know to use the Microsoft circle drive in Windows 10: 

Getting Started

There are two ways to log in as the original drive in Windows 10. When you log into a Windows 10 PC with a Microsoft user account, the original drive is already enabled by default. If you have a free webmail account on Outlook.com, you already have a Microsoft user account. If not , you can sign up for free . 

If you do not want to log in to Windows 10 with a Microsoft user account, you can log in to the original drive separately. Right-click the circle-like circle drive icon in the notification area of the taskbar, select Settings, and then click the Add Account button on the Accounts tab.

In the window that opens, enter the email address and password of your Microsoft user account. 

There is free 5GB of disk drive storage per person. If you pay $ 2 a month, you get 50G. The uploaded file size can not exceed 10GB. There are also two business fare plans. One terabyte per user per year can be spent for $ 60 or an unlimited $ 120. The file size limit also goes up to 15GB. The original drive is also included in Office 365

 Storing and Synchronizing Files with File Explorer In

Windows 10, the use of the original drive is mainly through the file explorer. The circle drive appears in the left navigation window that opens the file explorer. You can drag and drop files from one location to another, or you can save files such as documents, photos, and so on in most Windows applications.
 Every time you put a file or folder in the original drive directory on your PC, a copy is automatically uploaded to the cloud. If you delete a file or folder from the original drive on your PC, it will also be deleted from the cloud.
If you change the file on the PC's original drive and save it, the old version stored in the cloud will be replaced with the latest version. If you are offline when you make changes to a file, the latest version file will be uploaded to the cloud the next time you connect to the Internet

Unsync a specific folder

By default, all the circle drive files and folders are automatically synced to the cloud. To change this, right-click the circle drive icon in the notification area of the taskbar. When the menu window opens, click [Settings]. In the window that will open next, click the [Account] tab and click the 'Select folder' button. On the screen that appears, uncheck the folder where you want to stop synchronization.

Desktop, Documents, and Photo Folders
'm confused and confused, but the original drive itself has a separate folder called Desktop, Documents, and Photos. It is completely separate from the folder with the same name on the PC's hard drive. When you log in to the original drive, the original drive folder is used as the default storage location for the specific type file. For example, the .docx file is stored in the Documents folder on the original drive instead of the Documents folder on the hard drive. 

You can change this way to have your files stored on your PC's original desktop, documents, and photo folders (not synchronized with the original drive). Right-click the circle drive icon in the notification area of the taskbar, click Settings, and go to the AutoSave tab. Click the input box next to [Desktop, Document, or Photo] and select 'This PC only' from the dropdown.

 If you delete one of these new folders in the circle drive in the file explorer, the corresponding drop-down in the [Auto Save] tab above will return to 'This PC only'. 

One Drive Files On Demand With

the Windows 10 Fall Creators update released in October 2017, a feature called File On Demand has been added to the original drive. If you enable this feature, files stored in the cloud will not be forced to download to your Windows 10 PC. Instead, you can select a saved file. After uploading the file to the cloud, you can remove it from the hard drive of your Windows 10 PC. 

File on demand is enabled by default on a PC running the Windows 10 Fall Creator update. To disable it, right-click the circle drive icon in the notification area of the taskbar, click Settings in the menu window, click the Settings tab, and then click Save file space to save the space under File on demand. Uncheck the check box.

File synchronization status File synchronization status

of the circular drive in the file browser is indicated by a small icon next to the file name.
 If there is a cloud icon next to the file name or folder, it means that the file or folder is not on the PC and only in the cloud. 

• A green check mark appears on a white circle next to files or folders synchronized to your PC's hard drive and the cloud. 

• If you right-click on a file or folder and click 'Always on this device' in the menu that appears, the status icon next to it turns into a white checkmark on a green circle. This status icon is displayed next to all synchronized files and folders in the original drive when you disable file on demand. 

• When the file is being uploaded to the cloud or is being downloaded from the cloud to the PC's home drive directory, two blue arrows will be shown around the icon next to the file name.
 To remove the file from your computer's hard drive but save it in the cloud, right-click on the file and click "Free Space" from the menu that appears. 

To view the latest synchronization history, click the circle drive icon in the notification area of the taskbar. A window appears with a list of files added, deleted, moved, or renamed in the original drive.
