I'm using OneDrive on my windows 7 machine and found that "File On Demand" feature is not working as it should be. Whereas on Windows 10 this feature is working as expected. Files are visible on OneDrive folder even though I have chosen that file to store only on cloud and not on the local drive.

Is there any way I can use "File On Demand" on windows 7 or windows server 2008/2012(R2)?
