OneDrive Traffic RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Not Sure if this is the correct place to ask this question but here goes.

    I want to limit the bandwidth that our clients could access OneDrive, but for both within a web browser and the OneDrive Client. The only documentation I've seen is for the OneDrive Client. Is this possible using QoS via Group Policy, or would some other method be more appropriate? We'd even consider blocking access via browser and only using the client if that was the only way to do it.

    We want our users to be able to upload and download Documents (and other typically small files) but discourage downloading of Movies and other Large files).

    I don't have access to administer our OneDrive/Sharepoint Online configuration (cloud-side). I can only change client-side settings via GPO etc.

    If someone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Michael

  • Hi Michael,

    We can’t limit the bandwidth for web browser One Drive.

    As a workaround, we recommend using network quality of service (QoS) policies or Windows QoS policies when possible.

    If you can't use these policies, you can use the network throughput policies provided by the sync app or let users choose their throughput settings as shown below:
