    Browsing around the top requests for OneDrive I saw this one. Being planned, awesome!

    Well so much for MS keeping to their roadmap. I'm kind of glad they fubared storage space as it made me go to Google Drive, so placeholders isn't an issue anymore. +2 for Microsoft, they drove me away from Sharpoint AND Onedrive.

    Windows disable features in name of update.. A update should have new features and shouldn't be removed

    Honestly, they've been saying that it's coming for so long that at this point I don't care about any announcements until it actually shows up for the end-user.

    Like how they announced Xbox one DVR functionality then quietly cancelled the feature later. Definitely best not to believe what they SAY but what they actually DO.

    Ok, big update guys:

    Placeholders are back! :thumbsup:

    ...with a vengeance! OneDrive files now have 3 states:

    Online-only

    [​IMG]

    ...aka placeholder you know and love ;)

    Locally available

    [​IMG]

    ...downloaded upon opening a placeholder; persists locally until you right-click “Free up space”​

    Always available

    [​IMG]

    ...you can mark a file as “Always keep on this device” (so they don't get cleared by a global “Free up space” command, I'm guessing)

    Available now on Build 16215 for fast-ring insiders, and coming to a Windows 10 install near you! :cool:
