Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

As people create and collaborate on more files, take more photos and work across multiple devices, it’s increasingly important to access your important content, both from your work and personal life—all in one place. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether there is enough storage on your device or if you can access your files on an airplane.

 

Today, we are excited to share a set of new features that will allow you to see and access all your files on Windows 10, be more productive offline on your mobile devices and quickly share files on iOS.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Will the planned File Explorer capabilities require Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or a later version of the client operating system? Or will they also be applicable to older versions of Windows 10, such as Creators (1703)? How about Windows 7?

Also: Are there plans to retire the existing File Explorer integration with document libraries? We currently use that capability.

Thanks,

Rob

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

This is simply awesome!

RE: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Files on demand looks great. Hoping there is a way we can manage types of desktop files that can sync for the enterprise use.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

It will work will all supported versions of Windows 10 CBB

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Is this only for Windows 10 as of now?

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

IMHO, yes

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

a very nice feature!

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

I plan to use this in a Server 2012 R2 RDS environment so I too am keen to know if Files on demand is a OD4B client feature rather than an OS one.

 

A note of any Admin tools for this would be useful as well.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Will this be supported in RDS and Virtual Deskto scenarios?

RE: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Gotta love this! I'm assuming the answer is 'yes' but can I explicitly ask if there will be support for multiple O365 accounts and for files as part of Channels within Teams?

RE: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Is this planned for Mac and if so when?

Re: RE: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Right now, we will look

release this feature for all supported versions of Windows 10.

Re: RE: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

This will work with multiple accounts on a single device syncing all OneDrive Consumer, Business and SharePoint team sites content.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

This feature will work on all supported versions of Windows 10 CBB. This has no dependance on Server version.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

OneDrive Files On-Demand will work with all supported versions of Windows 10 CBB and  WIndows 10 S. We will not retire File Explorer in anyway as some people may choose not to turn on the FIles On-Demand functionality.


 


 

OneDrive Files On-Demand to be demo'ed at SharePoint Virtual Summit

To see another demonstartion of OneDrive FIles On-Demand, please make sure to tune into the SharePoint Virtual Summit next week - https://resources.office.com/ww-landing-sharepoint-virtual-summit-2017

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

to go along with the on-demand sync, is there any update on some of the old limitations of sharepoint document libraries (like list view threshold)?

 

we ended up having to sign up for a 40k /year box account to migrate our file server to cloud storage. if we could ever one-off migrate the workload back to sharepoint with an intelligent sync client backing it, we would come back in a heartbeat.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

It's always nice when Microsoft take away a popular feature, then add it back in again. And announce it as the most requested feature for Windows 10. Well done ms!!!

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

We're always looking at how we can imporve the SharePoint Online environment to provide expereicnes that meet with how customers want to use the service. This appleis to how we thing about both limits and boundaries. We will have more to annoucne about how we are enabling managing larger lists from a view perspective, and this applies to views in document libraries, too. The 5k limit has been met with limiting outcomes, especially if you've approached it from a metadata management perspective - which can help if you've not tried this - and found that it is not enough to help performance or return views of lists as you wish.

 

For today, I'll direct you to turn on metadata-based navigation, and configure the most important columns as either key filters or hierarchies. That has the effect of making it really easy to create selective queries over large lists, and has built in fallback behavior for times when the user accidently selects too large a data set. The basics for setting that up can be found here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/configure-metadata-navigation-for-a-list-or... . We, too,  have extensive documentation on designing large lists here - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262813.aspx. You should start with that and apply the recommendations to the customers scenario - that even with large view limits/threshold will help end users more easily navigate and find what they are looking for.

 

And soon, you'll hear more from us on how we're addressing this.

 

Thanks,

Mark

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Will Files On-Demand be available on Windows 7?

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

This feature would be greatly appreciated in RDS enviroments!

 

 

Please make it available not only to Windows 10 users but also for Windows 7 and RDS environments with Windows Server 2008 R2 and higher! 

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Something like files on-demand for Mac users would be very nice! But at is delivered by a Windows update, I don`t expect something on the Mac very soon.

Re: Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Is this due the end of this year?
