Show the files to be deleted when asking, "Remove files from OneDrive? You recently deleted 272 files from this device." Do you want to remove them from OneDrive too?"
I am getting hit with this question a lot, and I want to be sure the files to be deleted are safe. There is currently no way to tell other than restoring all the files, which could be sporadically dispersed around my hard drive.
I've just received this message and I don't know how to proceed!? I need to see the files before i decide.
I agree, this warning is stupid. Click on restore and it just re downloads them to the local device. Click remove, and it deletes them from the entire OneDrive service. Why is there no "no" button to just let the files be on the OneDrive server, but not my hard drive?

I Have the same issue just today. For me it's 19,000+ files.
PLEASE help us resolve this issue!
I have the same problem as everyone else here - OneDrive notifying me that I recently deleted 446 files from my device and do I "want to remove them from One Drive too?" But the list of files it shows puts the files in some kind of code.
I think this notification showed up after the last update. Could this be a bug with the new update.
Or, is it a way to push us into going premium?
Perhaps a legitimate form of ransomeware?

I HATE this question. Why can't you folks write clearer instructions??? I am about to give up on OneDrive for this issue. And this page still does not answer the question as to how I am supposed to proceed. I am stuck.

The whole thing is silly, anyway. If I move files from my hard Drive to One Drive, I just want them on One Drive. Why would I want to restore them on my hard drive, or delete them from One Drive?
Agree. 100%. Is OneDrive going to put them in the OneDrive "recycle bin" or is it going to delete them in an unrecoverable fashion? I have plenty of room and would rather leave my deleted files in onedrive for a year or so. Also, it does NOT give you the option of saying "No THANKS!" so you keep getting the question over and over.

I couldn't agree more with this. It is ridiculous to not show the actual files the program is talking about and... removing files is not trivial decision.
