@itzumee Thanks for the warning I am getting a new Windows PC this week.

Now I know it is to late for you but I have found a simple way to get files back from OneDrive onto your local machine. Just go to the OneDrive Help @ Settings, then select in the Setting tab in the dialog go to last option Save space .... and uncheck it. The files will download back to your PC.

I tested it today on my PC and files that were only on OneDrive downloaded to my PC.
