We have lots of shared pc's (for students and staff) on which we don't allow OneDrive sync because the disks would quickly fill up if everyone starts syncing their OneDrive.
With the placeholders being introduced (again) later this year, will there be any possibility to limit the disk space usage by policy or are there other possibilities to avoid disks filling up?

Could we have the administrative ability to limit the total size of the local cache on a per user or per computer basis? Leaving the eviction process up to an arbitrary low disk warning may still cause issues with shared machines. It looks like this will replace my WebDAV mappings to onedrive for business on conference and shared pcs.

I know about the new OnDemand sync, I would like to know if it will be possible to limit the space taken by this new OnDemand sync using a policy. Our shared PC's can be used by a few 100 users each month.

Unfortunately, I don't have an answer here either, but I'll foward this thread along to folks who know more. Thanks!

LeAndra, I know it is possible to access files wthout using disk space but
- users can still decide to take everything offline
- some files will be taken offline automatically
We need to be able to limit the storage used by every user or be able to disable the possibility to take files offline.

Has there been any new related to providing Administrators the ability to limit the local disk usage used by One Drive clients ?
We already cap users One Drive at a 20 GB currently instead of the 1TB as a way to help prevent the One Drive Client from filling hard drives.
However it doesn't do anything limit the amount used for Sharepoint Site Syncing.
Please help us adopt Microsoft's products and services.

Has anyone looked into updating MDT or SCCM or other workstation imaging tool to create a set Partition based on a percent of the local hard drive, and then Deploy One Drive Clients restricting the Sync Location to a new folder on the new Partition ?
This could provide a rather complex but possibly achievable solution to our concerns.
Image Workstation 75% to OS and Local - Carve 25% for One Drive / Sharepoint use.
Deploy GPO to set Default Storage location to new partition
Restrict users from changing storage location
Enforce Encryption on One Drive Storage Locations
