    Hi,
    Just started using Office 365 and get an occasional problem (only used Word/Excel so far but happens in both)

    I create my document and then do a save, selecting my Onedrive as the location, every so often it will save the file twice

    eg
    save the file as 'Letter.docx' and also get another version with my PC name on it 'Letter-Paul-PC.docx'

    It doesn't always do this, but wondering what this extra file is, is it some type of backup file? and can I just delete it

    You can just delete it in most cases. there is sometimes a problem with the syncing. The PC Name at the end is the PC that synced in the file. If it is not entirely sure which one is the latest one it will add the pc name to the file. Have the problem quite regularly with onedrive on all sort of things.
    For critical documents you should check the latest version by opening the files.

    Thanks for the reply

    Glad its not something I am doing, will go through occasionally and delete these (so far they have been identical to the original)

    For me I use Duplicate Files Deleter to get rid of any duplicated ones.
