    macOS port?

    Thanks a lot for explaining. Maybe I can make good use of it. For Mac, I'll try to make a DIY https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusion_Drive where the large/slow part is a 20 TB network volume. At most ~50 GB would have to be cached when in use (totally pruneable before caching some other portion). There's a lot of automagic with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_Storage , but provided it actually works, it's ok if I have to trigger pruning manually or something like that. As long as there's some indicator that it needs to be done. I'll try CloudDrive when I'm on Windows and maybe find uses for it there. It'll be a great reference at any rate.

    That's ok. I haven't tried this on Windows yet and was a bit overexcited when posting. I'm probably unclear on what it actually does. For what I'm after, I had this simple idea of a virtual disk that only caches actual files on access requests, and then has options to avoid the cache accumulating or becoming stale. Like erase synced cache after X time of disuse. Thanks.

    Could there be a macOS version of this at some point? I could see it being really useful to a lot of the developers who are on Macbooks. Even with fusion drives and SSD's, I often hear complaints about lack of space, speed and having to bring external storage because people have big, complex dependency trees that use absolute paths and are very tedious to sync.
