Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16226 today and it’s jam-packed with lots of new features and improvements. One of these areas of improvements is One Drive Files-On demand, so please have a look below.

OneDrive Files On-Demand

  • Last week, we released OneDrive Files On-Demand to Windows Insiders running Build 16215 and higher. This is essentially like OneDrive placeholders – but better. This was a highly requested feature from Insiders so be sure to check it out!
  • Additionally, we wanted to make sure that our customers are in control of all file downloads from the cloud. When they use OneDrive Files On-Demand (or another cloud provider), and an app (like a photo editor) tries to download files that the customer has stored only in the cloud, we’ll show a message displaying: what’s being downloaded, which app is requesting the download and options to dismiss the message, cancel the download, or block the app from downloading. (We also added a way to unblock apps in Settings > Privacy > App-requested downloads, in case you change your mind.)

So there you have it. It’s great to see that Microsoft is working to improve OneDrive Files On-Demand. Be sure to check out the improved feature, and submit your feedback to Microsoft and let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
