Use Storage Sense to manage disk space

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Windows 10 Storage Sense works with OneDrive to automatically free up space by making locally available OneDrive files that you aren't using anymore online-only again.

Try it!

Important: Storage Sense is a silent assistant that works on your behalf with very little setup. Storage Sense is available for Windows 10 version 1809 and later.

  1. Select the Start Menu, and search for Storage settings.

  2. Under Storage, turn on Storage Sense by shifting the toggle to On.

Any files you haven't used in the last 30 days can be set to online-only when your device runs low on free space. You will also be able to schedule who often Storage Sense runs.
