A question of the Month:

My OneDrive is huge and it’s taking up a ton of space on my hard drive! Is there a way that I can avoid storing all the files in OneDrive locally, and purely have my files stored online?

In the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft introduced OneDrive Files On-Demand. Normally, the way OneDrive works is that files stored in your OneDrive are still stored locally and then changes are synced to a copy stored in the cloud.

Or, if the changes are made in the cloud, the changes are synced to the copy stored locally the next time that machine powers on. With Files On-Demand, instead of opening the local file saved to your computer, your OneDrive file is now filled with what are called “Placeholders” to your documents – the document is only downloaded when you open it!

The advantage here is potential big savings for local storage; your several GB in size OneDrive should now take up only a couple MB!

To turn on Files On-Demand, please contact us at [email protected] and we can walk you through the steps needed!
