No Internet? No problem.
Files you save to OneDrive are available online at OneDrive.com and offline on your PC. That means you can use them anytime, even when you're not connected to the Internet. When you reconnect, OneDrive updates the online versions with changes you made offline.
Offline files come in handy when you’re without an internet connection, but can also take up space on your PC. By turning on Files On-Demand, you choose which files are always available locally on your device and which files are only available when you’re online. For more info about how to mark files or folders for offline use or as online-only, go to Learn about OneDrive Files On-Demand.
