Remove from OneDrive but keep on computer

Hello, I am trying to free up space on my OneDrive for college files like my class syllabi and notes for this coming semester in the fall. However, I have tried to remove files from the Onedrive and it removes the file from my computer as well. How do I remove files from the OneDrive but not from my computer?

Hi, I'm Elise, an independent advisor and I'd be happy to help with your issue.

You would need to move the files to another folder on your Pc which was not synced to OneDrive.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
Elise

You can check which folders are synced with I drive using these instructions:

You can then just move the files to any other folder on your PC.

How do I remove files from the OneDrive but not from my computer? 

You can't delete files from the online OneDrive and not have them also deleted from the OneDrive on your computer. 

However, you can have files in the online OneDrive and not have them take up space on your computer by one or both of these methods:
