    Those 3 works great for me. No issues at all.

    I have recently updated to Win 10 v 1703, mainly to get this feature to free up space. The option is available but when I select Free up Space it does not do anything, files and folders remain as local copies. Any suggestions?

    Hello hgscott, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    How large is the file size? It may take a bit if it's real large.

    Have only tried to get it to work with test files and folders. Around 9Mb total size.

    Here are 2 screenshots context menus, one at folder lever, and one at individual file level. Notice three different status columns have been selected but none of them show OneDrive file status as per your screenshots in article. Trust images are clear enough.

    Yep, your screenshots still show the green check mark for the files.

    You might see if toggling the folder view to large icons and back to details may sort the column issue. You should only have one "Status" column.

    Does clicking on "Free up space" on the files themselves instead of the parent folder do anything?

    Free Up Space from Locally Available OneDrive Files in Windows 10

    Have tried opening two ways, fromOneDrive icon in the notification area, and also through Windows Explorer. FYI I am signed into OneDrive for Business using a Work account.

    If I try and open from apps in start menu then it just asks me what library I want to sync when I am already logged into the app.

    Have toggled view to a few different options and back to Details. Have also tried clicking Free up Space on individual files. Nothing works though to change their status.

    Had tried that before but did it again. No luck. However when I turn files on demand off, OneDrive shuts down totally. Had to restart to get it back up again.
