Windows 7 One Drive & One Drive For Business

Hi

On our domain based Windows 7 pro pcs they come pre-installed with One Drive. We dont use One Drive as we believe this to be a personal storage area rather than business. Our users are all Office 365 and that comes with One Drive For Business which we will be rolling out to users to allow them to use that rather than local My Documents.

Question is should we be uninstalling the native One Drive app that comes with Windows 7 so the users do not get confused?

Thanks
Microsoft 365

great advice thanks Matt. Just curious as well does One Drive For Business client support selective sync of folders yet? Seems crazy user has to sync entire library?

Thanks

No problem, in my case I only drag folders into the OneDrive for Business that i would like sync'd, unfortunately there is no way that i'm aware of that you can deselect folders within the OneDrive for Business folder without just simply taking the folder out of the OneDrive for business folder.

It has to be said, I think there are some certain improvements to be made to OneDrive for Business and Microsoft may have jumped the gun to give users something, so that they can compete with Google Drive, DropBox etc.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
