New Computer - One Drive is Full

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming - TG01-1109
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just bought this computer, added a few folders of photos and now it says ONEDRIVE is full.  The technician says I am not storing my photos in the right place????  I  have them stored in "Desktop->Pictures."  Can someone help me with this.  I can't access my photos now or even add more.  Note:  I am not very computer literate.

OneDrive is NOT on your computer, it is a Cloud storage from Microsoft which has very small space. If you wish to add more you can buy more from Microsoft.

 

I don't use OneDrive to store my files, only few small files to share my files around specially some files to big for email.

 

The specs of your machine is

It has TWO physical local drives, plenty of room for you to store your data/files.  Please use the following way first

You can work out later and move your files on OneDrive back to local drive(s).
