Sharing Folders Between Business + Personal OneDrive Accounts

I have both personal and professional licenses for Office 365. I need to be able to share folders between the two accounts which are visible through the browser in my "shared" sections as well as in Windows Explorer. I have attempted to create and share a folder in both my personal and professional accounts and encounter problems with both.

PERSONAL ACCOUNT
When I create a folder in this account and attempt to share with "specific people" using the email address linked to my professional account, I get an error message that this email address is not a Microsoft account. I have no settings on my personal account that prevent sharing with external users.


PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNT
I can create and share a folder from this account which sends a confirmation email to my personal account. However, it has been over 24 hours since I started trying this process and the shared folder never populates in my personal account through the web browser or Windows Explorer.

I dont think that's currently supported in either direction, sorry. There are multiple UserVoice items around this, but sadly not much progress... https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913531-onedrive-sharing-collaboration/suggestions/15040281-sharing-between-onedrive-personal-and-onedrive-for

I aggree with michev.
Curently, as they use different accounts, we can't shared folders between OneDrive personal and OneDrive for Business directly, and we can not see the shared folders via another OneDrive account through the web browser or Windows Explorer.

Thanks for your understanding.
