Scenario : You want to save OneDrive or SharePoint Library folder to an External Drive

This policy lets you set a specific path as the default location of the OneDrive folder when users go through the Welcome to OneDrive wizard to set up the sync client. By default, the path is under %userprofile%.

  • Open Registry Editor
  • Access below
    • HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OneDrive
  • Create two keys under the hive
    • \Tenants\tenant ID

Note : Tenant ID found in our tools

  • Create a REG_EXPAND_SZ under the keys named

 ”DefaultRootDir”

  • Modify the value to the desired directory or folder where you want OneDrive to default in

Eg. “D:\Folder 1\Folder 1.2”

  • Restart the Machine then try to sync SharePoint Library or OneDrive folder
