How do you manage PC Settings Sync data for Windows 10?

I know back in Win 8 there was a hidden page in onedrive where you could see/manage the data that was being synced. I have tried deleting all my pc’s from one drive, made sure there are no device back ups in the one drive web app settings.

    <p>The settings is the only way to sync you settings.</p><p>Now I just wish in onedrive it will show me when my pc was last backed.</p><p>I think it even show my pc after I reinstall or reset my pc.</p><p>Onedrive will just tell yo what device was backed up. And then they have that in 2 different views. Go to onedrive, click on PC's, it shows pc's and phone.</p><p>If I click on the gear, then options, then device backups. It only shows my phone.</p>
