  1. I have instructed OneDrive to make all files and folders avail offline, but it's not doing...


    I have selected the OneDrive option to allow all of OneDrive to be available offline. In explorer some have the mark and some always have the 'cloud' symbol. When I go to delete a file it may say, "if you delete this online file it will not be able to be restored from Recycle Bin'' . . . why? If all my files are supposed to be avail offline on the local?Thanks, I guess if anyone answers then yes, thanks! jack ":-\\

    How does Windows 10 conversion setup offline OneDrive files by default


    When I migrate to Windows 10,

    • Placeholders will be deleted from my local OneDrive folder.
    • Per folder selective sync will be available.
    But that leaves a question…

    • Will per folder selective sync be turned OFF by default at conversion?
      • This means offline files on the local OneDrive folder will be orphaned.
      • Therefore, to avoid confusion, I’d need to either (a) delete them since they’re available online and since sync is off, or (b) turn on selective sync for the folder they’re in and sync all files in the folder, or (c) do nothing if OneDrive automatically deleted them in the conversion.

    • Or, will per folder selective sync be turned ON by default for folders that have offline files in them, syncing all files in such a folder?

    • Or, will OneDrive try to sync all folders to my local OneDrive, overwhelming the smaller drive on my laptop?
    It seems to me this would be important to know, but I've not been able to find anything on it.
     
  3. Changing OneDrive files from available offline to available online only

    ever since the latest update to windows 10, I can't seem to change my onedrive files/folders from available offline to available online only. Now, if I right-click on any onedrive folder or file I do NOT see the option to make it offline or online only.
    Has MSFT changed this functionality or is there a setting somewhere I need to turn on to allow me to make my files online or offline only???

    how do I make onedrive available offline?

    In Windows 10 there is no "make available offline" function.

    Right-click on one of the folders in OneDrive within File Explorer (that's the new name for Windows Explorer) and choose "Choose OneDrive Folders to Sync"
