I am using windows 7 Desktop.

I want to delete files from my cloud storage. If i delete the unwanted files from desktop synced folder, Does it delete them from cloud or retains the files on cloud and deletes only the local version?

  • It depends of the solution, but normaly it will erase your files on the cloud too since it's synced. Somes tools will allow you to unsync a specific folder on your local drive and keep it on the cloud (dropbox have an option for this). – max890 Sep 8 '14 at 14:40

Yes, if you delete them from the synced folder they will disappear from the cloud. I recently deleted 3GB using my PC and {after a while} they were no longer on OnDrive either from my PC or my phone.
