My opinion is that when satan accuses you of sin it feels like a negative 'you loser,you did it again,nagging kind of ' feeling.
But when the Holy Spirit convinces you of sin, it will feel like an "aha" feeling.
It will make you WANT to correct a wrong because it will positively benefit you.
The enemy is always out to destroy but the Lord, through His Spirit will build us up.
