Map as a network drive?

Hi!
I’m looking for a service that would not take any space on my laptop - I have a lot of files and my hdd would not be able to take all of them. Is it possible to use Odrive in such a way?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @rakelbara,
odrive does not support mounting like a network-only drive. odrive syncs files from the remote storage to local storage, and vice-versa. For the files to be accessible, they need to be cached locally.

By default odrive operates by using “placeholders” for files and folders, which take up no space on the drive. This means you can download only what you need to your local system, but you are able to browse the entire structure, if desired.

Thank you very much for your quick response! I guess I will take odrive for a test drive :smile:
Thanks again
Best regards
Rakel
