How Can I Schedule Backup to OneDrive

"I would like to back up My Documents folder to OneDrive automatically. What is the best way of achieving this? How do I schedule a weekly backup to Microsoft OneDrive? Please help me."

The OneDrive cloud storage solution has become an important part of Microsoft's platform, and in Windows 10, it's baked directly into the operating system. You can set up for it when you log in with your Microsoft Account, and you'll find the storage available in File Explorer.  

For backing up a single file, you can drag and drop it to the OneDrive folder. But for large amounts of data or ever-increasing files, it's better to make an automatic backup schedule. However, there is no facility by Windows 10 or OneDrive to schedule back up to Onedrive. This is a sync app instead of a backup app. So to schedule an automatic backup to OneDrive, you can resort to a professional third party utility, like EaseUS Todo Windows backup software, highly recommended here.
