OneDrive restriction

GoodResource 311 Reputation points

I have below queries:

  1. Can we prevent users to unlink their PC from syncing to OneDrive? We want users to sync and back up their local known folders to OneDrive.
  2. Can we login, activate and sync onedrive on user's behalf. We send email communication but they tend to ignore after assigning the license.

Please note i have gone through those silent configuration, known folder move and implemented those GPOs, but nothing worked.

OneDrive: A Microsoft file hosting and synchronization service.Management: The act or process of organizing, handling, directing or controlling something.

    That is odd. Can you provide the steps you have taken to implement the GPO's. We use KFM, Enforced by intune for multiple clients. Works like a charm.

    Have you for example configured your tenant ID in GPO?

    Hi @GoodResource ,
    Do you want to Choose which folder to sync in OneDrive? If yes, you can refer to this article:

Please make sure that you completely understand the risk before retrieving any suggestions from the above link.

    What's the meaning of "Can we login, activate and sync OneDrive on user's behalf."? Do you want to login, activate and sync with Administrator account?

    Try to provide more information about this problem and I'm glad to help you.
