How to Map OneDrive for Business as a Network Drive

The web-view of OneDrive for Business is great for certain use-cases but can be limiting compared to the Windows Desktop for serious productivity. Microsoft created the OneDrive sync client to help with this, but the sync client has a long list of scenarios it doesn’t support well (or at all).

What do you do then?

You can map a drive to OneDrive for Business, and solve both problems at the same time.

How do you do that? 

You have a few options for mapping network drives to OneDrive. Some involve scripts or frequent manual steps by the users themselves. But the most stable, powerful and user-friendly way is using our Office 365 mapping tool: Cloud Drive Mapper.
