Un-sync folder should not delete the folder from your drive
When I un-click a subfolder for synching, OneDrive unceremoniously deletes the whole folder and all the files in it from the local storage. If a folder is on the local drive, and I don't want it to synch to the cloud, that doesn't mean that I want all my local files to be deleted in that process. There should at least be a warning that files will be deleted from the local drive.

This is the reason I'll stop using onedrive, It's not even hard to implement. But so frustrating. No I dont want the few 100mb of garbage generated by VS to be uploaded every time I build something.
CORRECT, this is horrendes that it does that. Even more: It does NOT seem to do it all the time. There is no rule to it.
I often unclick syny my Video library (I have very slow upload) so that it will prioritize on my work files. OF COURSE it should not delete the files! I want to continue later on with these files!
Especially on a slow network: OneDrive has caused me a 30 day(!!!) delay since it deleted all pictures of my local drive when I tried to prioritize my working folder...
I totally agree with this. I use one-drive as a backup system for my visual studio projects. And I don't want the bin and obj folders synced, but I do want them on my local drive.
I see the one drive folder as a local folder first, a synced folder second. I cannot fathom why you auto-delete files. Just make it clear which files are local and which are shared and I'll delete my own files if they aren't wanted.
