    I work for myself and have two laptops, one at the office and one at home. Both Windows 10.
    I have work files on the laptop at work which is my main source but want the same files on the home laptop in case I need them. What I want is to have them available and when I update a file or create a new one then it's updated on the other laptop when connected.
    What I'm finding is that all the files are there but some have been renamed (with "-1" on the end of the filename) and this was either in addition to the original file or instead of.
    Is there a setting I need to change so it's a two way change?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I am having the same problem. I have been using OneDrive extensively for about 6 months, but this problem just started about one week ago so it seems like something changed recently in OneDrive (for me anyway). I requested support via the OneDrive email support feature and spoke with a couple OneDrive techs. They were not familiar with the issue and didn't know what caused it or how to fix it. They escalated the issue and promised a response within 24 hours, but I have not received any updates since then. I will try to post here if they eventually fix the issue, but in the meantime does anyone else know how to fix this issue? Thanks.

    Try turning off Office Upload - it alters the direction of sync, and ensures that OneDrive has the latest version.

    Select t
    1. he OneDrive cloud icon in the notification area.
    2. In the activity center, select 3 dots / More
    3. Select Settings and the Office tab and uncheck the Use Office 2016 to sync Office files that I open check box

    Also, make sure your PC finishes syncing before you switch off.
