When Microsoft launched Office 365 in 2010, Microsoft officials said then that customers were asking to move to the cloud.

Beginning in 2020, some Office customers will need to buy an Office 365 subscription to do so.In an update to Microsoft’s Office 365 system requirements released today, Microsoft said that consumers who have already purchased “perpetual”—i.e., standalone—versions of Office, such as Office 2010, Office 2013, and Office 2016, would be cut off from accessing the business versions of OneDrive and Skype after mainstream support expires.

Those who have purchased those Office suites will be allowed to connect until Oct. 13, 2020—the day mainstream support ends for Office 2016, and the day the new support policy kicks in. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

If you’ve been using Microsoft’s OneDrive online storage for a few years, you likely remember “smart files,” aka placeholders.
It was one of the few features—arguably the only—that made Windows 8 tolerable.

Those offline files would "stream" to your PC only when you tried to open them.

Thus, you could save space on your PC while still accessing the rest of your files in OneDrive as needed. The technology is easy to describe, but apparently hard for Microsoft to implement in Windows 10.[ The cloud storage security gap—and how to close it. | The InfoWorld Deep Dive: How to make document sharing really work in Office 365. | Put to the test: Office 365 vs.
