On Thursday, at Microsoft's Build 2017 Developer Conference, the company introduced a new feature for its cloud storage service, OneDrive, to allow users to access their files without occupying their storage space. This function is called & quot; Files On-Demand & quot; and & quot; Files & lt; RTI ID = 0.0 & gt;Windows 10 Fall Creators UpdateMeet with the user. With it, users will have more control over which files are stored locally and which files will be stored in the cloud.
Basically, Microsoft's & ldquo; file with the use of take & rdquo; is equivalent toDropbox & ldquo; Smart Sync & rdquo;(Smart Sync), it allows you to directly in the file Explorer to view all the files and folders, rather than only have to see those who have been synchronized to the local.
The idea is that users use online storage services more frequently & mdash; & mdash; create files, upload photos and work across devices & mdash; & mdash; they need to be able to see all their files without having to worry about forgetting to put a file Synchronize to an existing device.
However, Dropbox's "smart sync & rdquo; yesFor business usersAnd OneDrive's files are used to support OneDrive personal and business users at the same time, as well as support for the SharePoint Online team website.
In addition, you can not only see the files in OneDrive on your desktop device, but if you are using the software in the Windows app store, you can also see them in the software's file selector. When you select a specific file from the selector, it will automatically complete the download and be opened in the software, just like the local file.
Windows 10 file resource manager user interface will also be updated, the user can be in the extra "state" (Status) column to view the small cloud icon, in order to better identify the file is in the local or in the cloud The If you choose to download the cloud file, you can know in advance how much space it will consume, because even if the file is not local, you can also view it through the File Explorer.
If you want the cloud-specific file or folder to be available offline, you can click the right mouse button and select & ldquo; always keep on this device.
However, users usually do not need to go through this process & mdash; only when you know you need to go offline for a long time and do not want to be able to access important folders or files, you need to use this feature. In most cases, when you are in a networked state, you only need to double-click the file or select it in the software, it will automatically download to your device.
For large organizations that use the SharePiont Online team website, the file can also take advantage of the following: it can reduce the need for network bandwidth by reducing the amount of ongoing synchronization when the file changes.
For now, when you make changes to the file, it will be re-downloaded to all the devices that have been synchronized. It is not necessary now, because the user clicks the file will always be up to date.
Although the file with the use of the desktop device on the effect of good, but in mobile devices, network connectivity is often a problem. Microsoft has introduced a new option to solve this problem, allowing users to save the entire folder to a mobile device. In this way, once you are connected to the network again, you can open the file, others in your offline when the changes made to the file will automatically update.
At present, iOS users will be upgraded within a few months with the support for Android and Office 365 personal and home users and OneDrive business users.
However, iOS users can use OneDrive in iMessage starting Thursday. Users can share the entire folder or separate files in the iMessage interface. With this new feature integration, users can also instantly preview documents and photos in the iMessage interface.
