OneDrive | Online | Tips | Known folder silently redirection not work RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi OneDrive,

    Recently, one of my customers meet the issue on "Silent move Windows Known folders to OneDrive". When we configure the correct registry in local machine as following KB, the policy will not work as expected. And we have no redirection policy or <Prohibit User from manually redirecting Profile Folders> policy.

    Official Document:

    The root cause is that the silent KFM function will be triggered only in the first time. It is supposed to avoid repeating request when we open the OneDrive every time. It has a corresponding registry <KfmIsDoneSilentOptIn> in “Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive\Accounts\Business1”.

    Here is the solution.
    1. Step1. Delete registry key from below path:

    Path: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive\Accounts\Business1
    Key: KfmIsDoneSilentOptIn: 2

    2. Close the OneDrive and open it again
    3. You will see that the notification on “Silent KFM” automatically start to work.
