Folder selective sync with OneDrive for Business? RRS feed

  • Question

  • [I was referred by Microsoft support ( to post this question here.]

    Am I correct that I can selectively sync by folder (i.e., choose which folders I want to sync and which I do not want to sync) with OneDrive, but cannot do that with OneDrive for Business?

  • Hi GeekForLife,

    It seems you are using SharePoint 2013 or Office365 with OneDrive for Business (formly SkyDrive Pro), and it will sync the whole library you selected from SharePoint 2013 site or Office365 site by design, it's unable to sync the folder inside a library from SharePoint site.

    And the OneDrive is used for, in my opinion, here the top level folder from is similar to the concept of the library from SharePoint site, we can see from the client machine folder level.

    Here is an article may help, thanks for understanding.
