    Hey guys,

    I recently updated my OS to the new windows 10 (so much hype! :D) however my onedrive is only available as a desktop app (i.e. a folder in windows explorer)
    Does anybody know how I can get the new OneDrive app again?

    Cheers

    As far as I'm aware, there's no Windows 10 Onedrive app yet.

    Over time, Microsoft also plans to address the complaints that arose late last year when it announced it was discontinuing the beloved Windows 8.1 version of the sync experience which, unique among all OneDrive sync clients, lets you browse offline-only files in addition to files you’ve synced to the PC. (And do so while the PC is offline.) No, Microsoft isn’t bringing back placeholder files. But it has a plan to sort of approximate placeholder files.

    It’s called offline files. It will debut first in the mobile clients for Android and iOS in Q3 2015, giving us a decent idea of how this feature will look and work in Windows 10 (and on Mac). As I understand it, you will be able to browse through your offline-only files in a read-only, and only when you’re online. Then you can use the selective sync mechanism to mark files and folder for offline sync.
    And that is why I'm not updating to Win 10 now - will wait for that OneDrive improvements :/

    Just updated to Windows 10 and this was a HUUUUGE Disappointment. I have a Ultra-book with only a 128GB hard drive. I don't want to have to login to Onedrive.com every time I need to get access to a file, but I would rather not sync any files down until I try and open them. The placeholder feature was so useful. Erghhh!

    What do you mean by "login"? Don't you use your Microsoft Account to access your laptop? If using Microsoft Account, that login should enable OneDrive, I think...
