Allow the sync client to store files on network drives
This was already posted (http://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6329917-update-onedrive-for-business-to-sync-with-a-netw?page=1&per_page=20) and 241 people voted for it, but the deadly "Declined" status make the idea ineligible for support from the community, even though two pages of comments suggest there is a need for this feature. The fact is, businesses (including education organizations) have limited local storage and users that roam all over campus. We can't even use the sync client if it only stores files locally.
In addition, MS has not just opted to not develop this option, it's actively disabled some of the "creative" ideas people suggested to make this work. That's frustrating.
Please reconsider this idea. We would like to make use of this tool to the fullest.
Teachers log in to various computers in different classrooms but need their files always availiable, which is not possible if thesync folder is only local.
This is a top priority for us, we can't use ODFB without this function.
In our business, we have teams of 50 people all around the world in limited connectivity environnments (sometime no connectivity at all). The fact is that they are working on shared computers wich makes syncing on their laptop impossible as it would fill the hard drives in no time. Allowing the OneDrive client to support network locations would avoid us to have to tweek things to get there.
