I have file “-copies” on both my C: drive and OneDrive. (I had originally manually dragged files from C: to OD before I learned how to synch the two, so they duplicated when I set to synch.) I have manually deleted the “-copy” files from my C: which appears to also delete them from OD, but it seems that synch copies the files “back and forth” so that all the copies again show up on both C: and OneDrive. How do I get these to delete from both drives?
Thanks, John. Your instructions were very clear, but I was uncomfortable in deleting all docs from both my local and OneDrive files, since I have never restored any files from my external drive and didn’t have confidence to do this. What I ended up doing was to turn off my internet, search for *-copy* on both computers and delete all. Then I reconnected to the internet and let OneDrive resync my remaining files. This seemed to work and took only about ten minutes. I will recheck on my next login to verify that all is well. Again, I appreciate your response and will keep a copy of your instructions, but I thought you might like to know how I solved the problem with more confidence.
