    All the Onedrive app is, is an exact mirror of what is online - it's just a method of accessing it without using a web browser. So any changes made in the app will reflect online. The reverse is the same - delete something from Onedrive website online, it will be gone in the app on your PC.

    It takes a while for it to sync up.

    So for uploading its better to use browser rather than app which creates unnecessary duplicate files on my HD.So what if my HD gets formatted will i loose all the stuffs on the cloud too.

    The Onedrive app is a link to what is on the cloud - what's on the cloud will be there no matter what. Does'nt matter if you copy stuff with the app or upload it via the website, it still goes to the same place.

    Formatting your hard disk will have no effect on the contents of your Onedrive. But it's always handy to keep a local copy of what you upload... if you delete the original file from your hard disk, and something goes wrong with your Onedrive (ie in the cloud) then that file is dead, gone forever.
