Hey there, I found a guide that points to plist editing, where I can change (FilesOnDemandEnabled > false), But it has no effect.

 

Is there a definitive answer?

 

Also, is it safe to set EnableFileProvider to false? I am not happy that OD behaves like iCloud Drive and would rather use it as it was pre-Monterey.

 

I am using the ASi preview version 21.250.1205.0002
