Save Local Disk Space with OneDrive

Microsoft provides two tools - OneDrive Files On-Demand and Windows Storage Sense - that can help you use less local storage.

This article applies to: OneDrive

Files On-Demand

OneDrive Files On-Demand lets you store your files in the cloud only, saving storage space on your device. You also have the option of storing both locally and in the cloud.

For more information see Microsoft's

Storage Sense

Storage Sense - available for Windows only - will move files to the cloud (removing them from your local storage) when you haven't used them recently or when you are running low on local storage. When you next access a file, it will be re-downloaded to your device.

For more information, see Microsoft's Use Storage Sense and OneDrive article.
