Can I redirect known files to OneDrive instead of my File Server?

Applies to Nerdio for Azure (NFA) and to Nerdio Private Cloud (NPC)

There are some issues to be aware of if known folders were to be redirected to the Users' One Drive.

  1. This will break some functionality in NAP automations that leverage the default FS01 document locations.
  2. If Office 365 were to experience issues, users may not be able to access documents that are up to date.
  3. Your file server is connected via a 10GB internal LAN to desktop.  One drive could potentially be slower.

As an alternative that would provide the same access to files in OneDrive and Nerdio, consider setting up OneDrive file sync of user documents folder.  This would provide the best of both worlds as a user would have same fast access in Nerdio, and access to those documents, outside of Nerdio, in OneDrive.
