Sharing between OneDrive Personal and OneDrive for Business
One should be able to share a file from a OneDrive Personal Account to a OneDrive for Business Account.
Right now, the shared file doesn't appear in the receivers Business Account, but only in the Personal Account. But that is useless for people using Business primarily.
A private person owns a OneDrive Personal Account. He/She wants to share project files to a company, which will then work with these files. Sadly the files don't appear in the OneDrive for Business Account of the employee of the company, but they appear in the employees personal Account and mix up with his family pictures, music, whatever. If the company doesnt allow their employees to use their personal accounts when they are on the job, the employee wont be able to do the project and the company would have to reject the customer.
We agree 100% with the suggestion and are exploring ways to enable this. This represents a significant amount of engineering work hence we don’t have a schedule to share yet.
My school just switched to OneDrive business but now we cant share folders from our personal onedrive accounts to our business ones - advise please!

There's no update for two years??
This is a huge problem for us....
That's really a feature our customers are waiting for. Not everyone is using an O365 account where sync is already possible.
Yeah I need this feature also!!
I can't even exchange files between my university and personal account!
But we as user, we have to admit that this is also a security holes. What if the policy of company is very strict and doesn't want to allow any external movement of the files, for example if you are not at least in a specific rank/position.
Please sort this out. I've heard of several people who have moved back to Dropbox because of this pointless restriction!
Imma add my voice to this. Two clouds become one!

Yes this is needed in the sharing world of 2018.... this we really need please work on it!
Any updates, MS?
Please can we get this, I have migrated to Onedrive for Business and it is causing issues with sharing.
And vice versa, obviously :)
