OneDrive with files On-demand

This is the #1 features OneDrive users were waiting for. I was so thrilled to see Jeff Tepers announcement on the release of OneDrive on-demand feature.

Day by day people create and collaborate with more and more files, including photos, work related and personal files. As the number grows the same with the capacity as well. But how often do you need all these files at the reach of your finger tips, I mean in your local machine.

The On-demand feature in One-Drive will cater this requirement beautifully by allowing you to access all your files in the cloud without having to download them and use storage space on your device.
You can see a new file status column representing each file, which will show you the existence of the file. Whether the file is in the cloud or in your local machine. You have the option of always keeping the file in your device.

As you can see in the above images, it will show you all the files as they are in your local machine, but it will not consume any storage unless you download the files locally. Online files will automatically download and become locally available when you need them. Simply double-click a file in File Explorer or open it from within an app.

If you are a Windows 10 user, update to Fall Creators Update to enjoy the cool feature.
