After doing a backup to Amazon Drive, and deleting the files in the directory that was backed up the disk was still bloated.
Looking around I found the directory noted in the title full of all the files I backed up. Why is this?
Could it have happened if the system crashed during a backup?
Can they be deleted if they are up on Amazon Drive?
Welcome to the forum! As long as you only did a backup and haven't set up a sync folder, you should be able to delete files from your device without them being deleted on Drive. This only happens if you've enabled sync and delete something in your sync folder.
I hope this helps, let us know if you have additional questions!

I think I did a drag and drop backup, though I would rather do a nightly backup. That was the intent anyways. When I look at the settings, "Sync" is not enabled. I have the ability to "Enable Sync" so my thought is it is turned off.
Just don't know why all these files that were in a C:\Work directory ended up in one of my user folders on the same hard drive labeled Amazon Drive.
