Documents folder confusion

Frequent Visitor

I tried to copy files to my new computer and it seems like the files are now on OneDrive - even if I tried to move the files to the "real" documents folder "OneDrive"  appears to insist that the files should be moved back and now only the folder-structure remains in place. 

 

C:\Users\<user>\Documents contains the folder structure only. 

C:\Users\<user>\OneDrive\Documents appears to contain the files - and I do not want that! 

 

To add to the confusion, Win11 shows the OneNote folder as "This PC/Documents" - why does this happen? I have a bunch of files in the "Documents" folder that I do not want on OneDrive, so how do I specify that??
