I've just read the Windows Blog post about the new build - and one thing really stunned me - What did they do to OneDrive integration?
As far as I can see, they just butchered the the integration principle from Windows 8.1 and slapped back the old OneDrive app that works like it did 2 years ago.
I mean, was there really anyone that confused the available online/offline files? I liked those "placeholder" files, because I did not need to have all the stuff on my local harddrive, but I saw everything and could download anything I needed in just a few clicks.
The selective sync principle is imho cumbersome and slow in comparison and the thing I miss the most are those placeholder files mentioned in the blog post. Now I can't just search for some files in explorer that are only in OneDrive and download them as
needed, but you need to either sync everything to do those kinds of searches (which practically kills one of the purposes of cloud storage, at least for me) or open OneDrive website, search for the files there and... Heck, this is ridiculous!
What is your opinion guys? Am I the only one that sees this as a major step back?
I would suggest to have both options available. what do you think?
EDIT: I'd request everyone, who is not happy with these changes and would like to at least have the option to use the previous synchronization model, please, either recommend this thread and/or leave a comment with your suggestions. Also feel free to let Microsoft know your discontent by any other means, so they get the users' feedback regarding this. Thanks.
