Onedrive sharing in Office 365

We need to be able to share files in one drive to a group. We had initially tried using our distribution groups but that doesn't appear to work. It seems we will have to maintain 2 identical groups for each purpose. One distro and one security. Does any one else have ideas on this?

You can just create a mail-enabled security group? Sharing with a "modern" Office 365 Group should also work.

Hello. Since you are using Office 365, depending on your packaging, why not use SharePoint? There is a ton of details out there about how it will or will not work but essentially after setup its easier to manipulate these shares across your organization. Below is a video to reference.

After doing some additional research I don't see a way to convert the distro groups to security groups. Rather recreate the groups I think I'll convert them to the Office 365 group and enable the toggle for users getting a copy of the mail in their inbox that way they have the same functionality they are used to. Does that seem reasonable or are they any other caveats I have not thought of?

Well, for starters not all DG groups can be converted to O365 groups, much like there's no way to convert DGs to mail-enbled SGs. Another thing to consider is that each O365 Group comes with "baggage" in terms of the group site, planner, etc. Apart from the clutter considerations, they will appear in some of the clients/endpoints, and might confuse users if you have not yet adopted O365 Groups in the organization. But sure. it can work for the task at hand.

Gave 2 good options. I will explore both and decide which one works best for us.
