The sync feature is designed to enable you to keep a replicated copy on your PC of a document that is stored in OneDrive or SharePoint. This option is perfect for those times when you have a spotty internet connection since it allows you to have a local copy on your PC to access whenever you need to, even without internet availability. The best part about the sync feature? No matter what document is updated, whether it be in SharePoint, OneDrive, or on your local PC, the file will be updated everywhere.
