    On your PC select your OneDrive folders that you do not need available on the PC - right click these folders and set to "available online only" - the syncs will continue to work however will not fill your local PC.

    If you delete a file in your OneDrive folder it syncs automatically. If the file isn't available Offline (if you set your OneDrive folder on your PC to Details you'll be able to see if it says it's available Offline) then it's only on OneDrive, not on your PC. So you don't need to delete it.

    Check your OneDrive online, there's a Rubbish Bin. Maybe it's in there.

    If you delete a file from the OneDrive folder it gets deleted. You can still find it in the trash can in Onedrive.com
    With windows 8.1 you can right click a file -> make available online only and it no longer takes space on your computer. Some updates are coming to this with Windows 10
