Windows folder redirection and OneDrive

Folder redirection has been a handy trick for years in the world of network IT. Does moving to Office 365 change that? No – the only thing that changes is how you enable folder redirection with OneDrive compared to network storage.

Cloud Drive Mapper provides seamless drive-based access to OneDrive for Business to replace your local home drives. Now it can take care of folder redirection with OneDrive too.

Benefits of folder redirection

Your files are at a far greater risk on a local hard-drive than behind Microsoft 365’s sophisticated security. If your files are on local hard-drives they’re vulnerable to data theft, loss and malware. Whereas keeping data off your devices and in the Microsoft Cloud means that even if the device is lost or corrupted, the worst-case scenario is that you buy a new device. Normally, you’ll just be able to wipe the device and start again.
