I moved 92GB of files to OneDrive three days ago, and they're still syncing. As I type this, there are still 1,192 files remaining (45.9GB).

If a Windows update comes along and reboots my laptop during inactive hours, will OneDrive resume syncing those files?
I ask because I made the mistake of moving the files to OneDrive instead of copying them. So if something interrupts the process I'm concerned about losing them completely.

Files copied to the onedrive folders first. Then they get uploaded. If uploading is interrupted, they syncing will continue from where it left off. You would have to physically delete them to lose them.
