  • Hi,

    To disable OneDrive for Business in Office 365, there are two distinct steps you need to configure as an Office 365 and SharePoint Online administrator.

    1) Hide OneDrive for Business from Apps Launcher
    You can hide OneDrive for Business App from the Apps Launcher by changing the app visibility setting from the SharePoint online administration site. Please keep in mind that – if users know the OneDrive for Business Site URL (ie. https://tenantname-my.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/MySite.aspx?MySiteRedirect=AllDocuments ), they can still access their OneDrive for Business site.

    2) Disable OneDrive for Business in the Office 365 tenant
    From the User Profiles tab, you can alter or remove personal sites creation permissions for specific users or group of users. This would disable future personal sites (aka. OneDrive for Business) creation ability of those users.

    If you want to disable OneDrive for Business for a specific user, you can use the second option.

  • Hi,

    If a user has had OneDrive for Business, there is no way to disable OneDrive for Business for him, we just could hide OneDrive for Business as the first option in my first reply.

    Thanks,
