    Would be useful to keep from accidental syncing of large folders to your various devices, especially when you sign in to (with OneDrive Sync client) many devices, or a device temporarily.

    Would absolutely love to see this capability for OneDrive personal (not talking about OD4B in this particular use case) accounts!

    An example is sharing among family members, and specifically of one spouse wanting to share their entire OneDrive with the other (not having to share individual Documents, Pictures, Music, etc folders for example).

    Another family example is an older (or not so older) parent wanting to share their entire OneDrive with a child or a parent wanting to share their younger child's with themselves or an older child wanting to do the same with a parent or sibling.

    Another use case would be an individual who has two separate OneDrive account (two separate Microsoft accounts), again, MS Account, not AzureAD/O365 and needs to easily share files between the two. There are many use cases where two personal accounts exist and those use cases won't go away.

    Making one folder in the root (and sharing it) and placing the other folders in that folder doesn't always work either. Some apps (Office Lens is an example) look for that Documents folder directly in the root folder. Other applications are similar or even put their own folder directly in the root folder.

    Thanks for taking this into consideration Microsoft!

    thinking about it  ·  Eugene Lin responded

    We’re looking at two related pieces of this:
    1) For OneDrive for Business, enable shared folders to be added to the root of the OneDrive folder at all (like in OneDrive Personal).
    2) For OneDrive across business and personal, enable shared folders to be placed into subfolders.

    We appreciate your patience; this is significant engineering work given the architecture of the products and our diverse customer base, spanning individuals to small businesses to multi-national enterprises to government agencies. We aim to address this while maintaining our industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance commitments.

    Thank you for the continued feedback.

    Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
