I need to free up some space on my hard drive. I decided to do so by deleting some old photos files. First I moved my photos from my C drive to Onedrive. However, when I remove them from the C drive, the photos from my OneDrive also get deleted. What steps do I take to keep the photos on my OneDrive there while deleting them from my hard drive?

@HotCakeXthat has no relation to the question I was asking. I asked how do I delete files from my hard drive without them being deleted from my OneDrive?
