    Why were SMART Files Removed from OneDrive in Windows 10?

    Technical Level : Basic

    Summary

    This article details why SMART files, also known as placeholder files, were removed from OneDrive in Windows 10.

    Details

    OneDrive has gone through many changes in Windows 10, most notably the removal of SMART files (placeholder files) from OneDrive. They still exist in Windows 8.1, however they were removed, hopefully temporarily, from OneDrive in Windows 10 because of the
