We use Office 365 for our email and all Office applications. Our Outlook is installed on a terminal server and each user's Data File (.ost) is stored on a local directory on our server. Is there any benefits to changing the Data File location to Online? I am wondering if we would see any performance improvements or if there are any cons to going Online. Thank you.
