Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"
Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.
Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable, or by application of a folder attribute during bulk data migration.
Files and sub-folders within the non-synchronizable folder should not inherit the non-synchronizable attribute. In other words, users should be able to move selected contents (sub-folders and files) out of this non-Synchronizable folder to another folder that can be synchronized if needed.
I think this makes a lot of sense and I support it!
