Support OneDrive without local synchronization

TreeSize is able to scan OneDrive content only if it is synchronized to the local PC. It would be good if a OneDrive account could be scanned directly / online.

Jumping back to the original feature request -- I am also in need of the ability to scan/analyse OneDrive *without* downloading all the files locally.
i.e. An online scan, like with SharePoint.
Or a _limited_ local scan that *does not* trigger OneDrive 'Files on Demand' downloads, and would only be able to see the limited attributes of the 'online' files.
I'd be happy to test or discuss further 👍🏼

That should already work unless you use features that work on the file content (like duplicate file search). But you need to have the local synchronization activated.

In Windows Explorer, for folders and files stored on OneDrive (for Business), users can select to Free up space by removing the locally cached copy, or to mark it to always keep a cached copy on the local device.
When using TreeSize to identify large folders and files to free up diskspace, I regularly find myself switching to Windows Explorer to free up space by removing locally cached files.
Therefore, for folders and files stored on OneDrive, I would like to have the options "Free up space" and "Always keep on this device" that I also have in a regular Windows Explorer when right clicking the file(s) or folder(s).
Having the Sync Status column available directly in Treesize would make your tool even more versatile.

There is also an issue with regards the space calculated by Treesize on the drive. My HDD is only 0.5 TB but Treesize reports my files as being 0.8 TB (which includes files on OneDrive but which aren't actually on the local HDD). I.e. it doesn't accurately report HDD space when including OneDrive files

Hi! We did not receive similar reports so far, and scanning offline files works as expected in our testing environments. Could you please contact us at treesize@jam-software.com, so we can investigate this behavior? Thank you.

Please note: SharePoint Online Sites can already be scanned natively.

What does Win10 have to do with OneDrive?

You can already scan your Windows 10 OneDrive folder as well as SharePoint Online servers. Can you be a bit more specific?

Please note: If TreeSize is started as administrator, the OneDrive folder of the user will not be available, as OneDrive runs in the user context. Workaround: Do not start TreeSize as admin.
