  1. I only use the 5GB free version so I need to now how I can have some of my bigger folders only on my computer and not on OneDrive. I have an external drive for those folders instead. Thank you for posting!

  2. Is there a way to extract text from a document? I know I can do it with the iPhone camera on iOS 15 but I would think there should be a way to do it here when scanning a document. I haven't found a decent OCR program for the PC yet.

  3. Photos and videos are backed up even if deleted on my camera roll even if I delete on camera roll I deleted a couple of videos on camera roll and the video didn’t play on the drive app

  4. Please!!! I need a logical flowchart presentation of the relationships and connections in explorer between 'This PC', Users, Administrators, OneDrive, File History, etc. Kevin, you do a great job of concise, complete presentations. I wish that file explorer and related parts of Windows worked as explained… i.e. When and how does 'This PC' match a user's folders and files? Which set is backed up in File History? Which are uploaded to OneDrive? When I tried to make myself an administrator to do some functions, why did all my folders disappear in both 'This PC' and as a user, then reappear, but just in 'This PC' and not the user?, etc. You can tell I was trying to get a new PC going and have had huge unresolved problems. Very frustrating.

  5. Great video.. Need to ask one thing that can one user (owner) of OneDrive Family plan use all the available 6TB if he wants or it will remain reserved for even if no family account added?

  6. QUESTION: If I backup 2TB of data from my PC, and then I switch to a new fresh PC that has no files. Will the old files be kept on OneDrive? Or will it mirror/echo the new PC and erase all files?
