Before Windows 10 I knew where I stood regarding OneDrive and in particular the implications for displaying folders and files for the storage available on my computer. What I have always thought of as the excellent feature of placeholders meant that files could be displayed and selected with only minimal space being occupied. Since that was discontinued I have lost track of what the current status of OneDrive is.
Some time ago MS let it be known it was introducing a replacement for placeholders. What has happened regarding this? A while back I remember finding a menu of options for OneDrive files, such as whether syncing takes place in both or just one direction. I have not found it since. Recently a OneDrive folder has appeared, in which all my OneDrive files were downloaded unasked to my C drive, taking up oodles of space. I want it back but am afraid to just delete the folder in case it deletes everything on OneDrive.
A further issue concerns the OneDrive app available from the Store. I can only launch it directly from the Store itself. Clicking the Tile does not open it, instead it opens the OneDrive folder in Explorer, with a display different to the app which also has a number of extra features.
I have 'let sleeping dogs lie' for too long and now need to get it sorted out.
