    Microsoft plans to launch a new OneDrive storage feature in the next feature update for Windows 10, out September/October 2018, that turns local OneDrive files to on-demand files automatically when the files are not accessed for a set period of time.

    The company launched OneDrive's files on-demand feature just last year; it is the classic placeholder feature that displays all files hosted on OneDrive locally even if the files are not available locally.

    A placeholder image takes up little space and visualizes to the user which files are available. Windows indicates whether files are locally available or online, and will download any file that is only available on OneDrive servers when the user requests them.

    The new option to remove local OneDrive files automatically to replace them with placeholder icons has been added to the storage options on Windows 10. The feature is available only in recent Insider Builds and not stable versions of Windows 10. Microsoft plans to integrate it in the next version of Windows 10, version 1809, though.
