I have a server with 5 users that are accessing it, saving their data to it. That data is in their own home folders with folder redirection turned on. In addition, I have a shared folder which everyone has full access to. Users want to be able to access their files from outside of the office but they don't need Terminal Server. We have been using DropBox but now that each Office 365 account has 50GB of storage, I figured this would be the better way to go.
I also have all the users running with Office 365 and have the package where we have OneDrive for Business.
I can't get OneDrive to synchronize the users folder redirected folders or at least I don't know what is going wrong. When I right click, I was thinking that there would be a link to Open up the selected folder in OneDrive but I don't. If I right click on the tray icon and select 'Sync a new library' it opens up and asks me to paste a library URL. So I open the folder that I want to sync '\\SERVER1\Users$\TestUser\My Documents\Expenses' for example, I get an error "We can't connect to the specified SharePoint site..."
Is there some step by step proceedure that I can follow to resolve my issues?
I don't want to sync the files back to a local drive, Eventually, I hope to have all of the server files set to replicate with OneDrive so that we have both local backups and cloud backups.
