How can I tell which files have been moved to remote storage?

A. Files that have been moved to remote storage have a small clock icon on them which means they have been moved to remote storage.

When you access the files it will be fetched from remote storage and a dialog will be displayed showing progress.

From the command prompt you can tell as the file size is in a bracket, e.g.

F:\NT FAQ Book>dir
Volume in drive F is Archive
Volume Serial Number is D44C-7669
