If you have photos, music, or other files that you want to keep but don't use very often, consider saving them to removable media, like a USB drive. You'll still be able to use them when the drive is connected, but they won't take up space on your PC.
Connect the removable media to your PC.
Open File Explorer from the taskbar and find the files you want to move.
Select the files, go to the Home tab, and then select Move to > Choose location.
Select your removable media from the location list, and then select Move.
It's handy to have your OneDrive files saved offline so you can use them when you're not connected to the Internet. But if you're running low on drive space, try saving fewer OneDrive folders offline. You'll still be able to get to them from OneDrive.com, but they won't take up space on your PC.
Go to the right side of the taskbar and find the OneDrive icon. If you don't see it, select the Show hidden icons arrow and see if it's there.
Right-click the OneDrive icon and select Settings > Choose folders > Choose folders.
Clear the check boxes for folders you don't want saved on your PC, and then select OK.
