Going to give PC another try before returning fresh install seems to be acting better.

Regarding your Microsoft OneDrive issue, OneDrive is meant to be a 1-1 sync of your computer. It's almost a complete backup.

With OneDrive, the files on your computer will either be the actual file (takes up storage) or bookmarks to the actual files (stored online). You can choose either depending on your workflow.

The nice thing about OneDrive compared to MacOS backup via Time Machine is, in the event that your computer crashes, you don't have to restore any files because all your files are on OneDrive (because it's a 1-1 sync). All you have to do is sign into the Microsoft account, and all your files are there.

When your crashed computer is sent for servicing, you'll still have access to OneDrive via your phone, tablet, and hence you still have access to your files. With MacOS backup, you only have access after your computer is back from the service centre, and restore is complete.
