      There is just one OneDrive, as the name implies. The PC and the phone are different devices that look at the contents of this “drive”. So there is no explicit syncing between between different devices connected to the same “drive”.

      Like there is no explicit syncing between different PC’s in your home network that store files in a shared disk that’s connected to your router. They just see the same folder with the same contents.

        Thank you, Kees, for your reply.

        Indeed, I would have very much expected all picture contents of OneDrive in my both PC Windows and Samsung Android to be identical, but I had found them to be VERY different. (After reading your reply, I just confirmed to myself that that is in fact the situation.)

        It is a complete mystery to me as to what pictures which I had taken using my Samsung Android camera go into OneDrive in my Samsung Android and OneDrive in my PC Windows. So I had thought that syncing between OneDrive in my Samsung Android and OneDrive in my PC Windows might be necessary to obtain identical contents in both places.

          After some “maneuvering” in One Drive in PC Windows, I obtained picture contents of One Drive in PC Windows and in Samsung Android which are identical.

          Even though I have plentiful experience in using websites, I find that OneDrive is not at all user-friendly.

          OneDrive is not a website … it’s kind of a hard disk. And the apps, both on the PC or on your phone are kind of what Windows calls a File Explorer.
