We have been using OneDrive as a local application to sync and to offline work with SharePoint files. But our IT admin is not happy about the amount of space those files is taking locally. We have around 500 users and around 150 SharePoint sites. and users are just syncing all the libraries because they prefer to work and edit the files locally rather than using the online office apps.
So, is there a way to use the traditional way of working with files locally using the "Open in explore" option? so when the user accesses their windows "This Pc" to have a drive that is connected to selected sites? so the files will not be stored locally and will need a connection to be able to view and edit the files? is this a valid option?
