Are you using OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online with your Office 365 subscription? If so wouldn’t it be nice if you could quickly populate and sync your document libraries from a mapped network drive or a CIFS share sitting on a NAS Appliance. I think this is very important because that is where all of my important files live in a corporate environment. So how exactly can we do this?

Well the answer is with Symbolic Links.

I have documented this process and gave a presentation at the Calgary Microsoft User Group recently on this exact topic. Luckily, I was able to record the session which you can watch below.

If you didn’t know Microsoft has a new program called MODE (Microsoft OneDrive Experts) and it led by our fearless leader Stephen Rose @StephenlRose.   We currently have 3 members of Interview with an MVP that take part in this program.   Emile Cabot @ecabot, Clint Wyckoff @ClintWyckoff, and Dave Kawula @DaveKawula.

Watch the session and if you have any questions at all please feel free to comment or reach out on social media.
