Free up space, option

It would be nice if it worked like OneDrive, where you can free up disk space for files you don’t need locally.

Currently, it seems Insync downloads everything that is selected to be synced.

I second that. Displaying files, but not downloading them until I double-click on them, is standard behaviour with Drive File Stream’s native (Google’s) client. It’s actually very useful when you sync big Team Drives (e.g. I need most of a team drive’s files, except that dozen of huge videos).

On the other hand, let’s not forget that downloading everything is a nice feature if you have the necessary space. E.G.: you want all of your files locally so that theyr’e at hand if you work offline.

So this feature should be optional.
