Files on Demand Please

I’ve seen requests like this with varying levels of clarity.

One of the great features of the OneDrive client is its Files on Demand functionality.

This shows all of your cloud drive holdings, in a replicated folder structure on your local drive, and with all the files listed as pointers. When you double click the file pointer, it syncs the file down, and executes upon completion.

In my opinion, this is literally the only way OneDrive on Windows is superior to Google Drive. If Insync were to enable this functionality, it would be wonderful. At this point I have to load up Insync, and browse my directory structure to see what to take local. To see it all, with status overlays that indicate “in the cloud” or “on the local device” would be truly amazing.

Thank you for sharing your feedback, @Auslander! :slight_smile: We have received a similar feature improvement for our file manager integration and I’ve sent this to our product team for review! :slight_smile:
