    You have left! (?) (thinking…)

    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.

    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!
