OneDrive: Update to settings pane for PC folder backup

OneDrive: Update to settings pane for PC folder backup

OneDrive is making changes to the settings pane for its PC folder backup feature, commonly known as Known Folder Move. The update will add toggle buttons to the settings pane, along with information about how much storage will be used by the feature in relation to an end user's total storage allotment. The feature itself remains unchanged and will continue to automatically sync a user's Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders on their Windows PC with their OneDrive account once enabled. This change is set to be available in January 2023 and will be applicable to the Desktop platform and Cloud Instances such as DoD, GCC, Worldwide (Standard Multi-Tenant), GCC High.

This is a minor but helpful change for users who rely on OneDrive for keeping their PC folders safe and backed up. It will provide more visibility on how the PC folder backup feature impacts their overall OneDrive storage allotment, and make it easier to enable or disable the feature with the toggle button.
