When we sync our sharepoint online document libraries using OneDrive desktop app, we got these 2 icons inside the Status column:-

i read this article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/what-do-the-onedrive-icons-mean-11143026-8000-44f8-aaa9-6... but i am still confused about the differences between these 2 icons.. as in both icons we will have a local copy of the file that will be synced with the online version is this correct?

Hi @John John, the green tick with white background icon shows for cloud only files that, once opened, become a locally available file.

The solid green tick icon shows for files marked as "Always keep on this device".
