I have synced the teams and channels to my Windows Explorer.

However, when a channel is deleted in Teams - its still in the explorer folder. I have to delete it manually. 

Is this supposed to work like this?

Hi!

Yes this is expected! When a channel is removed the underlying SharePoint folder is NOT removed. And it’s the SP folders you are syncing
