How do I sync my Sharepoint files with OneDrive?

The OneDrive sync client is now compatible with both OneDrive and SharePoint document libraries. This method replaces the unsupported SharePoint drive mapping method using Internet Explorer where you could view your Sharepoint library in the file explorer or 'my computer' on your workstation.<

  1. In your browser open the Sharepoint document library you wish to sync to your PC
  2. Click on Sync in the top menu then select Sync now in the pop-up window.
  3. If another pop-up window appears, select “Always allow to open links of this type in the associated app”
  4. Click Open Microsoft OneDrive.
  5. Open File Explorer to see the new SharePoint sync folder, accessible via University of South Australia in the left-side menu.

You have completed the sync of your SharePoint Document Library. Repeat the above steps for other document libraries you require to have available via File Explorer on your PC.

For other App/Sync options see OneDrive for Staff or OneDrive for Students.
