Virtual Sync - Free up space

Opened and edited files are downloaded locally. Is it possible to open/edit files without the files being permanently downloaded and/or set the client to automatically free up space.

Hello there,

welcome to the community of Nextcloud.

You started a topic in support category.
Unfortunately you ignored the template and a lot of information to help you is missing.

Please add all necessary information like Nextcloud version, webserver type and version, os version, related log file content.

Without additional information the community members cannot help you.


Is this some kind of autoreply? I am not a new member, and no need to fill in the template for this question.

Unfortunately I do not see my text I wrote to you. You see a template I use very often.
But wrong here. Sorry for the confusion!

For us you need to get help. You did not mention the client version you using and the platform.
I think windows but MacOS offers this as well (by beta at the moment).
