Why Learning How To Unlink And Close Windows 10 OneDrive Cloud Sync (2020) Is Important:
What Are The Benefits Of OneDrive Cloud Sync?
OneDrive Cloud Sync is a feature built into the Microsoft Windows operating system for automatic backup to the registered users OneDrive. OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud service that stores files offsite for backup and restoration. The OneDrive is equivalent to Google’s Google Drive service that allows users to access files from anywhere at any time.
One great benefit of the OneDrive service is that it will automatically detect and back up files that are modified into the cloud. The “cloud” is basically a secure off-site storage location where data can be pulled from at any time. It is never recommended to store sensitive information such as personal identification, social security numbers, or financial information onto OneDrive.
Why Would I Disable OneDrive Cloud Sync?
There are various reasons why a user may want to disable the OneDrive Cloud Sync feature. First, the OneDrive Cloud Sync feature has a significant performance impact on the Windows operating system. Disabling this feature results in a performance gain for the system.
A second reason to disable OneDrive Cloud Sync is to ensure files do not get backed up to the cloud. The user may possess sensitive information on the computer and wants to make sure it does not get backed up to a cloud service. Because of the connected nature of operating systems, completely disabling OneDrive Cloud Sync ensures a backup to the cloud does not happen.
A third reason to disable OneDrive Cloud Sync is simply that the user has no use for it. Perhaps this is an empty workstation that is only used for basic tasks. Or, perhaps more frequently, it is a gaming computer used exclusively for gaming. These two applications may not require OneDrive at all, so disabling it is a logical thing to do.
