Roaming profile & Office 365

I am running AD on a windows Server 2008 R2 and i have 25 users across 3 sites running roaming profiles. We have implemented Office 365 for Business for all users and are using One drive for business. We are syncing our local one drive with the cloud One Drive. The local One drive folder is by default part of the roaming profile and is causing the roaming profile to take ages to load due to the size of the profile on my AD server.

What is the best way to have the one drive syncing to the local machine, without being part of the roaming profile?

You need to exclude the OneDrive files from Roaming User Profiles, create or change a Group Policy Object and set the exclusions for OneDrive folder.

One drive will still be syncing to the local machine no matter whether it is part of the roaming profile.
