Hi,

is it possible to map OneDrive for business as a drive?

Is there any tutorial / Walk through guide for this - if possible ?

It seems possible for Onedrive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2GR0Z1OeSw - but cant find anything "For business"

It is possible, the requirements are pretty much the same as with SPO sites. So are the downsides - the token will have to be renewed periodically or the drive will get disconnected. To work around it you can use tools that automatically renew the token by simulating user activity.

I never have. But that's only from my experience. But obviously if your password is set to change every 3 months then this will affect it. I guess you may have to have a test period and see? Can't help much more as it works for me. Cheers
