    Lumia (Windows Phone) is not using offline files. You can access all files on all of your OneDrives but nothing is stored on phone if you do not download it. This of course is as it should be, no use to use local storage on phone if not needed.
    Partially agree in that one may have trouble with enough storage space on a smaller device such as phone, but what if one doesn't have either carrier or WiFi access to be able to work on a file? I realize this would be a rare instance, but it could happen. Let's say I'm meeting with someone to close an important business deal and I need access to a file to show?

    Funny detail: My both Lumia phones still show "SkyDrive" for private OneDrives and only use the new name OneDrive for those from Office 365 Business.
    That is weird. I only have WP8 version of Office on mine. Of course the OneDrive app also.

    OK, that's true. Thinking of western world, there are not many places where you do not get a carrier signal but you are of course right.

    I kind of like it, I still use SkyDrive on my phones .

    It's not that I'm right that bothered me. It's being right in the face of a man of your expertise!

    Even here in the U.S. we lose data connection due to the carriers system being down. It doesn't happen a lot, but sometimes it's for a long duration.

    Wow! Not only are you very knowledgeable, but you must type a thousand words a minute. Not only did you have to think about what I wrote and what you're going to write, but then you had to type the post with dual quotes I might add! This all performed in 7 minutes! It takes me that long just to think about it!

    Kari is very fast. If you ever get into an argu discussion with him, don't even think about editing your replies because he will have already responded.

    So Kari, after enabling Offline files per your suggestion my Windows 10 OneDrive app now says it is Downloading 50%. But the OneDrive folder was already full with correct size on disk without needing to download anything from OneDrive. Is this because it was set up to use from WIndows 7 OneDrive desktop app which always saves a hard copy? I wonder why 10 didn't virtualize those files then?

    A simple explanation: I'm divorced and retired, too ugly to find a new woman, no interest in finding a new man, too lazy to work, nothing else to do .

    I do not know that but I suspect you are right: if you share the same OneDrive folder that is IMO the reason.
