Sorry about my confusion (and sorry if it confused you)

I don't know OneDrive. I usually use rsync (cygwin)
rsync -rvz --size-only "local/" "/mnt/webdav/remote"

For what you describe you'll find GoodSync works fine, clients for most
non-linux platforms (for Linux I prefer davgs2 if I can't rsync)
