SharePoint synchronization to Windows 2008 server shares

Last Modified: 2015-10-25
I am trying to set up OneDrive synchronization with SharePoint sites and our Windows Server. Our server is running Windows 2008R2. We have a subscription of Office 365 Business Essentials. I have gone into SharePoint and set up 3 different sites.

On our server, these are the Locations of the data
\\SERVER1\Shared$ physical location is D:\Data\Shared
\\SERVER1\Accounting$ physical location is D:\Data\Accounting
\\SERVER1\Users$\Usernames physical location is D:\Users\Usernames

I have installed OneDrive on our server but that is where I don't know what to do from here. I'm assuming that I should be able to set OneDrive to synchronize each of those folders up to each of the SharePoint sites?
