Just as described above, in general, there are two kinds of synchronization of OneDrive.

Selective Sync with OneDrive from Local to Online

Does OneDrive have selective sync? Yes, of course. Microsoft OneDrive itself provides an official application to help its users back up local files to its cloud storage. Download and install the OneDrive app on your machine and sign in to your OneDrive account. Go to the settings, move to the “Auto Save” tab, and select “Update Folders”.
