OneDrive users on Windows 8.1 PCs could access its useful placeholder file feature, but that was removed from Windows 10. Now a new report claims that feature may return as part of Microsoft's big "Redstone" update for the OS.
The OneDrive placeholder feature let users to keep a small thumbnail file of their cloud-stored document on their local PC, which could be clicked on to download the full version from the account. While Microsoft decided not to include this feature for OneDrive Windows 10 owners, Thurrott.com reports it may return:
"Based on a source who has knowledge of the company's plans, this feature is expected to return with the release of Windows Redstone late next Spring. Current expectation is that Redstone will arrive in June but as with all features and timelines, depending on how the platform matures, deadlines may slip and features can be cut."
