I’m a new user; sorry if this is a FAQ or has already been discussed in the forums. I spend some time looking for answers but did not find any.
One feature of the “on-demand” Google File Stream that I like/need is that I can go to my file stream drive in windows file explorer and I see all the files that I have on my drive without actually having them locally. I can work on them and they remain in the cloud.
With insync it seems that the only way to get a file in the file manager and to work on it, is to sync it and therefore store it locally. It is also less convenient to upload files into folders that are not sync’d (I have to go through the web interface). Does Insync have the ability to show folders and files for non-synced items (and leave them in the cloud)? Can I then navigate through the local insync directory and work on those same files that are only stored in the cloud? Hopefully this question make sense.
I understand the advantages of syncing locally and being able to work off-line, but the current google file stream method of showing all folders and files and then working directly in the could has huge advantages for me.
thanks in advance, mark
