We don’t have a timeline yet but it’s still on our radar.
I'd like to chime in and say LAN sync is very much required at my company too. Trying to sync a onedrive account with 50GB to an additional computer over the internet connection when i already have a copy of the files on another computer right beside me. i cant imagine what it would be like if i had a terabyte of data in my onedrive like my subscription allows, i would have to wait a week for the sync to finish.
This would be great. My organization needs to sync folders with other companies.
We have to keep our files in Dropbox to accomplish this.
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.
This is another reason i cannot move all my company's data to OneDrive / Ofice365.
Users need to be able to sync folders in the Office365 Business Premium version of Overdrive with external users who are using OneDrive Personal.
I have to keep much of my company data in Dropbox because it works perfectly for external syncing. Therefore i am paying for two file syncing products and i am unable to use some of the features of Office365 Business Premium because my files don't live there. I need to use a third party file syncing tool from CloudHQ to sync between OneDrive Business / OneDrive Personal / Dropbox. That's subscriptions to three file syncing products to accomplish everything i want to do. That's not a tidy solution.
Ive spent many hours over the years wanting to like OneDrive and make it work but i am unable to recommend to my colleagues to fully adopt it instead of Dropbox. Also from a training point of view some, some non-technical people have a hard time understanding the difference between Personal and Business Onedrive accounts and having multiple Onedrive accounts synced with the same sync client and who you can sync with if your files are in one location opposed to another...... Dropbox just works, you pop in the email address of the person you want to sync with. OneDrive Business has these characteristics that make if difficult for me to adopt and train people and support. I know the products are very different behind the scenes but from an end user point of view OneDrive would be more usable if you could put all your files without worrying about who i can share with or what version of one drive other people have
