How do I know if there has been any problems with the sync between OneDrive and my device?

On a Windows device in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, you will see a blue cloud. (Note: you may have to click the up arrow to see the icon) This is the OneDrive notification icon. If there is a small red x  on the blue cloud then the sync needs some attention. Simply click on the icon to bring up the OneDrive window and then follow any advice given.

This is an example of a OneDrive that has correctly synced with your device.
