The problem was that many users didn’t really understand how the feature worked. This resulted on a lot of users not knowing how to access their files offline. Unfortunately, to prevent further confusion, Microsoft removed the feature in the early days of Windows 10. After much requests from numerous feedback, Microsoft has announced during its Ignite technology conference that the feature is returning. However, instead of calling placeholders, the feature will be called On-Demand Sync. We heard a number of times rumors of placeholders coming back, the company even released a modern app of OneDrive that behaves similar to how placeholders used to work. Microsoft hasn’t shared any details to when users can expect On-Demand Sync, but presumably the company has plans to roll out the feature with the Windows 10 Redstone 2, which is due in early 2017.
