Earlier this week, Microsoft took the first step in returning the very popular placeholders feature back to OneDrive in Windows 10 with the OneDrive Files On-Demand feature.
This feature has been missing for two years, just prior to the Windows 10 release in July 2015 it was pulled from the service, and currently Windows Insiders have begun testing this on their Fast Ring devices.
In the interim I wanted to share a quick tip on how you can quickly check how much storage you are using in OneDrive and how much space is left for your cloud based files.
Note: This tip works in the OneDrive client on all versions of Windows 10 that are currently available and only takes two clicks.
Find the OneDrive icon in your system tray and right click on it to bring up the context menu.
Click on the Settings option in the context menu.
Now you can just glance up in the top left corner of this dialog box and you will see how much cloud storage you're using on OneDrive and what the total amount is that you have available for this account.
Two clicks - well actually you will need a third click to close this dialog box once you have looked at your storage statistics.
