If onedrive and syncing is active you could potentially run into an issue. You may find your drive filling up as onedrive attempts to sync everything to the PC. You may be able to stop Onedrive from running automatically by using msconfig and using the Startup tab to disable it from starting. Then you can just use it when you need it.

The other problem you will face is the VERY long time trying to sync that amount of data. It could take many hours or even days over a fast internet line.

You can view the data in the cloud because you are looking at one or two files or whatever. But syncing it is a whole other matter.

I just turned on a spare PC and sync'd my storage folder (about 45 GB) not all the files had changed but a number had changed. It took about 90 minutes over my local LAN (which is vastly faster than a cloud connection).

Then, your home PC does not have enough space, so at a minimum, you can only sync a portion of your office PC.

As far as I know you will have an issue with the sync aspect of it. Your PC will most likely begin to run very slowly as your drive space is eaten up by the syncing process. Your virtual memory will most likely be all that remains. I would expect you to begin to get low disc space messages. I could be wrong as I am not an expert on onedrive. However, I think having the PC with 250Gb storage syncing to a 450 Gb storage is not a wise idea.

The answers at http:#a40760016 and http:#a40760052 have addressed this. You cannot sync a bigger drive to a smaller drive.
