    I have a Microsoft Surface 3 with Windows 10 operating system. Over 25gb of space is being used up from my Onedrive. I don't have the files synching to my tablet anymore but the space is still being used. I literally have no space left on my surface and was hoping that I could delete the onedrive files that are taking up space to give me some room. Can someone please help me?

    I do not have a Surface tablet, but it cannot be that much different than with a laptop or desktop.

    If you open File Explorer, do you see Onedrive at the navigation column ( left side ) ?
    If yes, can you not open Onedrive folder and delete the files within ?

    Wouldn't that delete those files in OneDrive too once it gets synched?

    Good point.

    In that case, go to the right side of the taskbar > if onedrve is hidden, click the poiner to open a popup box > right click at Onedrive > click Settings > click Choose Folders button > UN-check the box where you want to delete the files.
    That way, files will be deleted from the computer but remain online in onedrive.com.
