    We recently added the ability to transfer ownership to another user when deleting a user’s account from AAD from the M365 admin portal. If no entry is provided, the default will transfer to the manager. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/retention-and-deletion

    The manager or newly assigned owner will have the ability to sync that content or download and then move to a shared library or their own OneDrive.

    I agree this is ridiculous.
    One Drive for Business, but the files are 'personal to the user', that's the reason you give for not being able to transfer ownership!

    I would like to see a process where you can select the folder, choose to transfer ownership, select the other user, and then the other user gets a notification to 'accept' the transfer of ownership of the folders and files within.

    Really wish I hadn't transferred loads of files from a network share with my team to my OneDriveFB. This is a huge risk to our business as other advice from Microsoft states that shared files will be deleted when an employee leaves and their license is removed. I will be advising our organisation to steer clear of OneDrive for business until this has been resolved!
