OneDrive - function as folder without syncing?

Last Modified: 2016-01-20
I have a tablet that has a small SSD. My plan is to use OneDrive for my primary storage.
Is there a way to use OneDrive as primary storage without syncing?
The problem is if I have a folder sync setup, then my local hard drive will fill up before my OneDrive does, rendering my OneDrive useless.
Just want to be able to open Office locally and save to / open from OneDrive folder.
