    After posting that, I've discovered there are still problems with search and on-demand. When I search for LAPTOP001 in this folder, it finds them:

    As shown here:

    But if I then go up a folder to the root of my OneDrive, it finds one other file but not the above. The files found above are in "Helios Scripts":

    But searching LAPTOP001 doesn't find them:

    So basically Windows search can be trusted with on-demand :-( About to try PowerShell - how retro!

    I've got the latest version of OneDrive and April update for Windows 10 and this is partially fixed. I came on here to post a uservoice saying "Windows 10 search doesn't work with on-demand" because I was trying to find a batch of recently downloaded files with LAPTOP001 in the title. Search didn't find any at first. I then check "Always on this device" for one file and search found that one but not the others. An obvious problem with on-demand.

    However, I started getting some screenshots together for here but by the time I'd grabbed them and prepared my response, search had started working.

    So it looks like this has partially been fixed. Of course, it can't search the contents of the files but most of the time all we want is the file name.

    So partially fixed??

    PS. My laptop has just got a very recent version of OneDrive (with Office 365) that has the new "Autosave" or known folders new fix. That's caused a lot of debate on the blog.
