Confused by what the Documents and Pictures OneDrive icon means. All files and folders within them have the green tick.
Any help appreciated.

Ignore this, the icons went back to green ticks after a while. Confusing though.

I think that means updating, as you said the green tick appears when it's done

The circular arrows over those folder icons signify that sync is in progress. This includes when you are uploading files, or OneDrive is syncing new files from the cloud to your PC. :)

Thanks guys. I guess my point was, why are the sync symbols showing on the folders when all sub folders and files had a green tick?
I didn’t really explain that very well.
