Hello,

Can you try to pause the synchronization, then delete all files that you want to delete, after that resume the synchronization or reset onedrive.

To reset Onedrive

1. Press the Windows key + R.
In the Run window, enter: %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset

After 2 or 3 minutes OneDrive should start by itself, sometimes does not open.

In the Run window, enter: %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe

The forum has been closed due Microsoft direct the support to support.office.com, you can get assistance for Onedrive by using help button from your account in onedrive.com

Hope it works
