  • Hi A’Kumar,

    There is no OOB way in SharePoint online to achieve your requirement.

    A possible workaround can be like this: you can use group policy to restrict users from accessing the network drive. If possible, you can add a logon script to group policy to check if users access the network drive linked to SharePoint online. If yes, the script will break it automatically.
