In this video, learn how to manage Folder Redirection settings for OneDrive storage locations.
- [Narrator] Let's drop into our demo environment and take a look how to manage known folder redirection settings to OneDrive. I'm using a domain controller to show you how to set this up for all your devices across the domain. One of the prerequisites before using the OneDrive Known Folder Move is that you'll need to import the ADML and ADMX files that contain the group policy settings relating to OneDrive. These can be found on a Windows 10 client machine running the latest OneDrive Sync build. I've already extracted these from a Windows 10 machine. They come in the folder of a policy definitions folder, and then the language-specific ADML files. I'll make a copy of this folder, and then navigate to the SYSVOL folder which contains our group policy objects. (computer mouse clicking) In here, we can see policies. (computer mouse clicking) I'll select policies, and then paste the folder here. (computer mouse clicking) You can see the folder layout of the ADMX files, which contain the policy definitions, and the related language settings for each definition. We can now open the group policy and management console. I'll select group policy objects and create a new group policy object. (typing keys) I'll give the GPO a meaningful title, and then click OK. I'll edit the group policy object, which launches the group policy management editor. Under Computer Configuration, I'll select Policies, and then Administrative Templates. In here you can see a folder for OneDrive. There are 19 settings, including the prompt users to move Windows known folders to OneDrive, silently move Windows known folders to OneDrive, prevent users from redirecting their Windows known folders to their PC, and prevent users from moving their Windows known folders to OneDrive. Let's take a look at this silently move Windows known folders to OneDrive. We click a label, and then copy the tenant ID, which we confined in a Azure Active Directory. Let's extract our tenant ID from Azure Active Directory. I'll select Azure Active Directory on the left-hand side, and then under Manage, I'll scroll down and select Properties. The directory ID in the center is our tenant ID. I'll click copy, and then return to our server. I'll paste the tenant ID, and then click apply and OK. The final step is to link the GPO to our domain. I'll select the domain, right-click, and select Link an Existing GPO. Here, we can now select the Manage OneDrive Known Folder Move GPO and click OK. We can see the GPO has now been enabled for the domain.
