    When i install onedrive, onedrive creates a folder where i can put files. When i put files in this folder, a copy is made in the folder. I don't want that. I would like to either:
    - That the onedrive folder only has a reference to the file in the cloud, or
    - That i can sync another folder on my mac with onedrive in the cloud

    Any ideas?

    OneDrive doesn't work that way, the file actually exists on the computer AND the cloud. The software then ensures it stays synchronized
