When I set up one drive, I chose to send my entire pictures folder to one drive. Besides sending all my pictures to the cloud (which I want to do), my computer seems to have 2 folders: MY PC and One Drive which are both located on the C drive.
I believe this means when I save anything to "mypc/pictures" everything is duplicated on my C drive via mypc and one drive. Does this mean that every single picture is duplicated in the 2 folders?

1- If i deleted all the pictures in mypc, would they automatically be deleted in one drive? Would they still be in the cloud?

2- I never know where I should save my files that I want both on my computer and also in the one drive cloud? Should I just save to one drive or my pc?

Thanks in advance for your help, I appreciate it
