Migrate more folders using Known Folder Move
A few weeks ago, you released this great feature you named Known Folder Move. I find it awesome.
I think you should protect more of the user profile using it. Music and Video are great candidates (and already have OneDrive equivalents).
There are other folders I think would be interesting to move. They already have an OneDrive equivalent, but I don't know if any app uses them:
* 3d Objects
* Saved Games
Please add Downloads folder to KFM
Yes, please add an option to include the other folders, Documents, Music, Videos, and even Favorites, Contacts, 3D objects, Saved Games, Searches...There is no reason all of these cannot be moved.
It would be nice to have downloads folder also added to the OneDrive backup or else provisioning the option to select the folders, whichever is required as per requirement.

There is a workaround using Stealthpuppy's scripts: https://stealthpuppy.com/onedrive-intune-folder-redirection/
Another vote to also add Downloads to the KFM. More or less all folders the user would miss in case of a laptop crash.
All folders that you can re-direct by group policy, you should be able to config as Known folders. By not having this, its putting a stop to our cloud journey for users who use shared devices.
Agreed need to have choice to pick folders that are optional available in FR in GPO
Agree with comments below - surely can't be that hard to allow us to select further "known folders" to move to OneDrive.

Ability to pick which folders can be moved with known folders.
In the interest of using OneDrive as a valid back up, it would be useful the entire user hive had the option of being migrate with Know Folder Migration.
I'd like more control of this as well.
In the context of the environment I currently support, our preference would be for users not to store music or videos at all, but based on a quick analysis, the percent that do is pretty low. In terms of desktop support, we'd like to be able to hand users a new machine confident they'll have all of their stuff.

It would great if you could add all the same folders that can be done by folder redirection and let us decide which ones we want to do.
This would be awesome, why stop at pictures and documents alone?
And indeed, as Brad Meyer mentioned, Downloads would be nice to add to this list as well.

I'd suggest adding the Downloads folder as well since far too many users work out of that directory too.
