Hi,

 

we're testing OneDrive's Files On-Demand feature. There're two things, currently, hat we forsee might be difficult to explain to our users.

 

Firstly, the difference between "locally available" and "always available".

Secondly, and this is my question, why the context menu option to clean up also removes files set to be always available. We had assumed that this would only remove files marked as locally available and files set to be always available would remain untouched.

 

Is this the correct behaviour? If so, "always available" only comes into play when locally available files that haven't been used in a while are automatically purged.

 

Thanks for your input.
