OneDrive for Business and the local disk

I always thought that OneDrive for Business was something like a remote disk, the things you put there do not burden the local disk. But when I ask for the properties it tells me that OneDrive For Business is located on C, and when I drag files from C to One Drive for Business, the space on the local disk decreases instead of increases. I apparently have done something wrong, but what?

When I check online, most of the files are there, except some that are probably still synching.

Have I misunderstood the workings of OneDrive fB?

Somewhat. What you have on the drive is the local ODFB storage, i.e. the things you've chosen to keep both on the PC and in the cloud. You can adjust which folders are synced by going to Options or right-clicking the OneDrive folder.

if you want to upload files directly to the cloud and remove the local copy, best use the browser.
