    I'm new to Windows 10. I bought Office 365 which included 1TB of space for OneDrive. I would like to sync my Documents folder to OneDrive online but when I choose the 'choose which files to sync' option in windows explorer, only about 6 folders appear and I cannot find an option to search my PC for the desired folders to sync. Any help greatly appreciated

    so what I would suggest you do is to cut the documents folder and paste it to the onedrive folder. That way your documents folder would be synced online and whenever yu make any changes, the changes will also be reflected online. Just be sure to keep saving new documents to the documents folder that you've kept in onedrive

    If I cut & paste the documents folder will that not remove the original folder from my PC?

    yes, it would. I'm assuming that you want to create and edit documents and also have them syncing all the time.

    however, you can try this solution which is similar: Using One Drive to automatically back up My Documents folder - Microsoft Community

    So.... the OneDrive folder on my computer is actually a physical folder that stays on my computer and syncs to the cloud?

    yes.You can choose to have files on both local (onedrive folder) and in the cloud (onedrive website) or just online only

    Instead of copying, I right click on the folders (for example 'Pictures') and choose the Location tab and change it to the OneDrive location, then do for your other folders.

    I guess it's the same thing really.
