We would like to be able to prevent sharing entirely (Both externally and Internally) on One Drive for Business.
As a company we use SharePoint TeamSites and other collaboration tools for sharing both internally and externally. For a number of reasons it is important that users use the central document/project space for sharing.
We would like to see a feature added where we could disable sharing completely on users one drives
Thanks for the suggestion. Can you split up? We do support disabling external today but don’t offer support for disabling sharing within a tenant.
Its a security risk because any one of the random files that get shared to your Drive could possibly contain malware. And once they get shared to your drive a cashed copy is now in your Drive.

I am at a bank and we need to manage any sharing. This si not a 'feature' that we can have for all our users. Our eDiscovery and Legal hold functions are shattered
How about making a "safe" folder in One Drive for Business that you are unable to share the contents with anyone unless you move it out of the "safe" folder to another location. If you do this... we would no longer need on premise user storage. (PS our tenant has over 400,000 users and growing)

Fully agree, we want to enforce use of sharepoint for collaboration, allowing internal sharing from onedrive will unmanageable for data management and JML perspective.

I concur, I cannot vote as idea is closed
As a School Network Manager, this too is a must. We don't want students sharing files with other students.
We are happy for staff to share files between staff and students.
Also the option for groups to share files. So students can share files with staff, staff can share files with students but students cannot share files with students.
Please implement this feature.
Since the user does no more respond, I've created a new splitted up idea...

I agree, O4B needs the ability to prevent sharing within a tenant. Our governace team have positioned O4B as personal storage only with no possibility of file sharing internally.

I concur...we need the ability to prevent sharing on OneDrive 4 Biz. There's gotta be a way....

I agreed also
ODfB is a private area. Therefore no sharing is needed/required. Users need to understand how to collaborate, sharing documents/Folders out from SharePoint but not from ODfB...
This is a very important feature request to prevent users from managing complete projects or team workspaces out of their ODfB. People are incredible creative... :-(
This is very important feature to have for Onedrive for Business and Groups

Agreed, Governance requirements are precluding us from using this for more than a pilot due the the ability to share a 'private' document library. This is the point of SPO...
Agree, this Governance requirement is crucial to implement enterprise ready solutions.
totally agree with you!!!

Yes, I fully agree with this idea. If you can not disable shareing on Onedrive for Business, then users will not understand were to collaborate. We want to force users to collaborate in SharePoint and use Onedrive for Business only for their personal / private documents.
