    We have the same problem. I cannot follow all the talk of Group Policy. I discovered there is a file called "global.ini" in "%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\settings\Business1". It is a text file which you edit thru Notepad. Quit OneDrive, edit that file and look out for

    CoAuthEnabledUserSetting = true

    Set the flag to "false". Restart OneDrive. You should now see the missing File Collaboration toggle under Settings/Advanced.

    I posted the resolution on this post and linked back to it to help others out.

    This resolution worked for me.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1295430/how-to-turn-off-file-collaboration-in-onedrive

    Open Run (either search or Windows button + R) and navigate to "%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\settings\Business1".

    Look for the file "global.ini". It is a text file which you edit thru a text editor (Notepad, Notepad++, Textpad, etc).

    Open the file via the text editor.

    Look for CoAuthEnabledUserSetting = true and set the flag to "false".

    Restart OneDrive. You should now see the missing File Collaboration toggle under Settings/Advanced.

    Note: You may need to set the file "global.ini" to read only after changing the parameter, otherwise it may change it back to “true” once OneDrive is launched.
