OneDrive for Business Groovy sync tool

Previously known as SkyDrive Pro, now more appropriately named OneDrive for Business, builds on a solid foundation of years of sync technology.

In terms of functionality, I am quite impressed with the OneDrive for Business functionality. It keeps getting better with each new release.

I use my OneDrive for business syncing various SharePoint Document Libraries with multiple organisations in different folders on my laptop…quite handy for people on the move.

Download:

Use the license key:
When I set up my OneDrive for Business, I normally choose to use the license key rather than using my O365 login to install the app. Here is the license key: 3V9N8-W93CC-FQPB8-Y9WVF-TVGJ3

Limits:

There are some limits on syncing OneDrive for Business and site libraries, according to the OneDrive for Business help:

Note the following limitations related to syncing OneDrive for Business and other site libraries to your computer:

  • You can sync up to 20,000 items in your OneDrive for Business library, including folders and files.
  • You can sync up to 5,000 items in site libraries, including folders and files.
  • In any library, you can download files up to 2 GB.

OneDrive for Business is Gold:
It’s nice to see good ol’ Groove Networks still carrying on behind the scenes and Microsoft building upon a solid foundation of sync software, positively looking at it. :)

Personally, I have been very impressed by Groove since it was released! Groove was brilliant and way ahead of others at that time.

Well, One Drive for Business certainly is not a new kid on the block. I suggest you give it a try if you haven’t in its newest incarnation!
