Dear all,

 

is it possible to still see on the computer a folder that I made online-only(for example in a different color or grayed out).

For example in OneDrive it is possible to make folders online-only, but they are still visible on your PC and get a different icon, a cloud, rather than a green tick mark indicating that the files in the folder are online.

 

Thank you in advance,

Best wishes,

Maria

Hi @MFNL, thanks for posting on our Community today!

I think what you're looking for is our Smart Sync feature.

Could you have a look here and let me know if that's the case?

Thanks so much!
