OneDrive keeps trying to sync the same large files daily

I recently edited a batch of video files and moved them to a synced OneDrive folder (Win11), and now OneDrive repeatedly syncs these files every day for weeks now. It is consuming 90% of my bandwidth 24 hours/day now. I've tried restarting my computer, etc, but it always just picks back up on the same list of files.

There are 33 files totaling about 97 GB, and I have only used 240 GB of my 1 TB OneDrive. What's weird is it starts at the same place every day (9.0 GB out of 97.0 GB) and will complete the syncing of some of the files, then it seems to get to about 15 GB and jump back down to 9.0 GB, then continues, with the same list of files (including ones it already finished syncing), over and over again. I have not opened, modified, or deleted any of these files since moving them to the archive folder.

These files are all .MP4 and between 150 MB - 4.0 GB.

It is giving no error messages.

Strange... I suggest you to send your query to Microsoft Office help. They definitely give you the straight solution for this annoying problem...
