In this post, I will explain how to map a OneDrive for Business account as a network drive in Windows 10. This method should also work for organisations where the standard OneDrive for Business syncing is disabled as it uses a different protocol.
For this to work, you must use Internet Explorer and not any other browser. If you cannot find Internet Explorer on your system, enable it by reversing the steps from this blog post
Adding a Trusted Site
First, you will need to add Sharepoint as a trusted site. To do this, go to Internet Explorer and press
ALT+T then go to
Security tab and click on
Trusted sites. Add
https://*.sharepoint.com to the list.
Logging into Onedrive for Business
Go to login.microsoftonline.com on Internet Explorer and log into your account as normal, making sure to tick the 'Stay Signed In' box.
Then, click the view button on the right side of the ribbon and click
View in File Explorer to open it in on your computer. Make sure to allow all popups if prompted.
Mapping the Drive
Right click the address bar in File Explorer and click
Copy address as text. Then go to 'This PC' and click the
Map network drive button in the
https://[organisation]-my.sharepoint.com/personal/[username]/Documents. Then click
Finish, and hopefully the drive should appear as a network location
Removing the Drive
To remove the mapped drive just right click it and select
WINDOWS+R and typing
cmd. Then run
net use * /delete to delete all drives, or
net use O: delete (with the correct drive letter) to delete a certain drive.
