Multiple Accounts for OneDrive Personal - Windows 10
We have a Office 365 Home account which gives us each 1 TB of storage. Why am I unable to use the same home PC (when we do share) for OneDrive to sync her OneDrive and my OneDrive on the same PC?
Doesnt make much sense to not allow up to 5 accounts for onedrive personal to match Office 365 Home.
i need this. ive got a personal account and a family account that the wife and i share and use for all the household stuff
Yes, please! I would like to be able to conveniently drag and drop (move) files between different family member OneDrive accounts on File Explorer. It is a pain to share: I can go through the rigamarole of sharing folders between accounts, renaming them so they don't all just say "documents," then adding them to OneDrive local from OneDrive web., but really it would be so much more convenient to simply implement multiple accounts like business O365.
Absolutely. I have a personnal and a pro account, both are OneDrive Personal. I'd need to sync both on my computer.
That feature exists in Google Drive - we should have this in Office 365 too! If a family can have up to 5 members, then we should be able to sync up to 5 OneDrive Personal.

I keep documents in my personal vault, my family keeps documents in their personal vaults. We want to be able to share, sync and access documents on one PC. Not having support to sync multiple personal accounts is super annoying. I hope Microsoft adds support soon!

I agree I have my personal account and one for family but I can't sync with James account and when he hopes on my computer I get all his stuff save in my onedrive and when I jump on and don't check to see if he as change the settings to onedrive to his name I save personal stuff to his onedrive so annoying

In the absence of adequate access control on shared content (https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913531-onedrive-sharing-collaboration/suggestions/13441782-more-secure-file-sharing-for-onedrive-personal), synchronizing content from multiple accounts seems to be the only reasonably secure approach for sharing files between users within an Office 365 Home plan.
If there is concern that this feature would facilitate use of multiple OneDrive Basic accounts to exceed the 5GB storage limit in the free tier, this could be avoided by limiting the synchronization of multiple accounts in various ways. For example, it could allow the synchronization of only one Basic account plus multiple paid accounts.
I agree. This will help to share files much easily with family.
I agree! Please add this feature!

This would streamline things a lot for personal use.
I agree. I would really love to be able to use more than one personal account on my laptop
