    OneDrive -- make all files available locally


    On Win10 RS3, how to make all OneDrive files available locally? The option "make all files available" seems to only make placeholders available. How do you get the real files to be automatically downloaded to the local machine, not just on demand?

    Click the OneDrive taskbar icon then choose the account tab / choose folders. Then select the folders you want to synchronise with your PC. A synchronised local copy of these files will be kept in your PC's OneDrive folder.

    This setting works quite well for the computer on which I created those files and folders. But on a different computer, I get only placeholders.

    Perhaps reset / reinstall OneDrive since you should be able to synchronise from any PC. See my post 9 here OneDrive Problem After Anniversary Upgrade
