Although OneDrive makes it simple to synchronise files from your local computer with the cloud and any other devices that are connected to the same OneDrive account, the manual transfer of each file can be a time-consuming and laborious process. Because of this, OneDrive also gives you the option to set up automatic backups, which will ensure that the items stored in OneDrive are always in sync with those found in the Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders on your computer.
