Microsoft One Drive

We use One Drive from Microsoft for our data backup. Right now it is not very efficient because it only backs-up my data when I drag and drop a folder over to the "One Drive" folder.
Is there a way that I can setup One Drive such that my data gets backed-up automatically?

I realize the solution has been accepted, I want to offer one of the method's I use that does not require a 3rd party option.

I have a vb script similar to
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
FSO.CopyFile "T:\Folder_To_Be_Copied\*.*", "\\Location_To_Be\Saved"

Open in new window

The location to be saved can either be a local OneDrive folder or you can map a OneDrive location to the cloud and it will work just as if it is local.

My last step is to create a scheduled task to run the script. In my case, it runs every 5 minutes. But you can schedule to run it once hourly, daily etc.

When I have a large volume of files, I find it is better to make that folder a OneDrive location and let the OneDrive client do the syncing automatically.
