OneDrive Sync Tool.

For many of our clients and ourselves the oft times buggy old OneDrive Sync tool has been a cause of frustration and annoyance.

Welcome to the new Sync Tool. Released late January it is a painless process to upgrade and get all your SharePoint folders syncing using the new tool.

One major benefit is the ability to choose which files and folders to selectively sync.

Contact us today if you need assistance upgrading your sync tool.

In addition, the changes have also included some new back end administration options that previously did not exist. These include

  • Coauthoring and in-app sharing for Office files
  • Prevent users from changing the location of their OneDrive folder
  • Prevent users from configuring personal OneDrive accounts
  • Set the default location for the OneDrive folder
  • Users can choose how to handle Office files in conflict

If you would like to know more about or deploy any of these group policies contact us for more information.
