I'm new to 8.1, so I found one of my main folders sitting there in OneDrive, I am not sure if that was mistakenly placed there by me, or how it got there, . . . . but,

 

Please tell, when my folders or data is sitting there in OneDrive does that mean that it is in another

on line file somewhere called cloud ??

 

I really hope not, like for example MS is slowly depriving intellectuals of independence,  

 for example pushing Gif art to on line in order to open it, when it comes to art or works of art,

any fool would know that art work is definitely something you want to protect until you want to unveil it. 

 

Art may seem plentiful in this world but the security of original art work is always under pressure,

and so if it isn't broke why fix it ? 

 

I don't get it, the only thing I can figure is these MS people are already greedy for all kinds of information

maybe there greed is limitless.

Jove,

Unless I'm mistaken the One Drive is the cloud and the files there should be copies of the ones on your computer [it's backup solution which you do not 'have' to use]

 

You have to understand that it's not "greed" it's just that I don't have enough and need just "a little bit more"

Hello Paraclete  Thank you,..

OK so I don't have to use it, but let me ask you

if I do does that mean it uses an internet access to store it or

is the storage on drive one and that stays on your system ?

Drive one is on the Internet

the files would be on your computer and duplicated on the Internet

Keep us posted
