    I have the same OneDrive account logged into two laptops where I only open the program to sync files manually. I was wondering what would happen in this scenario:I make a new file on one laptop and then manually open OneDrive on the other laptop that doesn't have that file to sync/upload all the existing files there.If I manually open OneDrive on the laptop with that un-synced file and upload the files from my other laptop, will that un-synced file get deleted along with any other file that isn't in the OneDrive database?Does OneDrive only upload what was synced and will delete ANY file that i

    OneDrive Placeholders are coming back, now called On-Demand Sync

    OneDrive Syncing Question - If I have files on a computer that I'm going to get synced with... [​IMG]


    "At Ignite 2016, Microsoft has just announced that it is bringing Placeholders back to OneDrive on Windows 10. Now, they are not called Placeholders anymore — Microsoft is renaming the feature to “On-Demand Sync” which makes a lot more sense than “Placeholders”.

    The company demoed this feature at Microsoft Ignite today, and it works just like it used to previously. As you can see in the screenshot above, the files stored in OneDrive weighed in around 9GB, but the actual size on disk was only around 3MB which is really neat. Of course, this feature isn’t anything new as it was available back in the Windows 8 days. However, Microsoft removed the feature with Windows 10, and after lots of waiting, they are finally coming back.

    In case you are not familiar with OneDrive Placeholders, it’s a pretty neat feature which lets you see all of your OneDrive files on your computer — but they are not actually downloaded on your PC. When you open them, OneDrive will download the files on-demand, saving your local space which is really useful, especially if you have a PC that doesn’t have a lot of storage.

    While Microsoft didn’t announce when exactly On-Demand Sync will be available to OneDrive users, we suspect it will be available with Windows 10 Redstone 2 — which is expected to arrive early next year.
