OneDrive Files On-Demand
Allow an online sync only for OneDrive, like Windows 8.1 file explorer did.
Most of PC don't have enough storage to keep files on HDD.
That will really improve productivity !
I’m proud to announce that OneDrive Files On-Demand is now rolling out with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (https://twitter.com/onedrive/status/920288442965164033). Whether you use a personal OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or SharePoint Online, you can now browse all your files without filling up your disk and take advantage of the rich features of File Explorer. Read more about how you can start using OneDrive Files On-Demand & skip ahead if it hasn’t been rolled out to you yet (https://t.co/YFxsqB3JNb). Learn more about deploying Files On-Demand in your organization (https://t.co/zjAQJnbQlo). Thanks to all of you for the emphatic support, and a special thanks to our incredible self-hosters in the Windows Insider Program!
We need this to work on Mac also please:

It would be really nice if as part of this feature we could label the folder as online only directyle in OneDrive (online). This would have the effect of allowing us to push files to the directly but not have them downloaded to computers automatically. I currently hae my IPhone setup to backup photos to oneDrive, however the photos are being automatically downloaded to my computer.

Crazy to update windows 10 in enterprise !
One drive must be an std application (like google drive, ...) and not an OS application !
The onsite's file server win some more time to live ;)
The most important target for this functionality VDI environments. I really dont understand why this is made a 1709 only feature:-(
I am looking for files that were downloaded to this computer.
+1 For Enabling this in WIndows 7
Please enable this for windows 7. Not everyone uses windows 10.

(And yes, you could use this feature weeks before Fall Creators was out, just by opting in to fast-ring. I used the feature, it's great, worked great in my experience. But since my machine always became unstable on fast/slow-rings, I am now waiting for it to trickle down to the normal stable Windows 10.)

Guys, there is NO On-Demand for Build 1709 (Fall Creators update)!!!
Mr. Jason Moore is correct, just his information is incomplete. The feature is there IF you use "Windows Insider" with the Fast-Ring feature. It's probably in the Slow-Ring now too. But it's not in the stable build yet.
So if you want to use the feature, activate Windows Insider - or wait until it's 100% complete and we get it by a normal update. Just don't look for it on the final 1709 build because it's not there yet.

The new status icons for OneDrive Files On-Demand are flawed/inconsistent. The OneDrive Sync history confirms "You are All Set All Files Up to Date", yet I have many folders and sub folders with the spinner icon that when selected, File Explorer's bottom status bar will state "Sync Pending". When I drill into those folders and/or sub-folders, everything is show as a green checkmark or cloud icon. Basically confirming that this is not to sync. Why?

Three years later. You have to be kidding me. Oh, and thanks for blocking every email address I have so I have to use a fake one.
@Elliot : 3 years later for an option avalable on Windows 8 since 2012 !

This is why I love Microsoft. Unlike Google, Microsoft listens to feedback!
we are using Dynamics365 for our helpdesk.
We create a new Folder on Sharepoint for every new task.
We have more than 5.000 folders in Sharepoint.
We installed the Win10 Pro Fallupdate with OneDrive On-Demand.
But, of course we can still not see the folder with 5.000+ subfolders in the browser.
This means we do not have the "Synchronize" button.
How can we add this folder to OneDrive On-Demand?

I had to update onedrive manual by download it and update
If you do not have the option, you are probably no executing fcu update.
Install update (my link below) & go to onedrive settings, you'll have the option. In fine, all files must be checked
@Simonrdz. I've updated to the latest OneDrive build, but I don't see an option to force all files to always be online.
If you do not have the option with the RTM (16299.1x), try to update OneDrive with the link below : https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=851311
