At Microsoft's Ignite conference today, the company finally announced the return of OneDrive placeholders in Windows. The feature will now be known as On-Demand Sync.
Microsoft says that a new OneDrive app for Windows 10 devices, built on its Universal Windows Platform, could arrive this month - but early builds are said to exclude placeholder functionality.
WalkingCat, a Twitter user who is gaining credibility as a leakster at a rapid pace, found the first clues that OneDrive placeholders may be returning in the Windows 10 Redstone update.
OneDrive placeholders - which let users see all of their cloud-stored files, including those not installed on a device - are reportedly returning as part of Microsoft's Redstone updates to Windows 10.
