I suggest you ...

Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

        I am now testing a workaround by taking ownership of the System Volume Information folder, adding full access to system users, but keeping it hidden. So far, so good. I will post exact steps soon on the link below.
