Hi,
I have two questions on the same topic

1. How to stop OneDrive personal from Office 2016/365 showing up but leave OneDrive business in Windows 10?
2. How do I sync a shared OneDrive folder as we have setup a COMPANY folder which is shared will the people in our organisation but we would like to see that folder in folder locally on everyone's computer?

Thanks

Hello,
ad 2) there could be only one safe solution - install OneDrive on your fileserver and share the folder with people

You can disable the personal OneDrive via GPO/reg settings: https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Administrative-settings-for-the-new-OneDrive-sync-client-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c#disablepersonalsync

As for syncing shared folders, this functionality is coming soon(ish).

Thanks you for you comments but I have just found a great solution as Microsoft have just updated the One Drive client so it removes the personal OneDrive and allow you to sync shared folders
