There are plenty of items on the internet about how to set versioning for my OneDrive users, however, the settings for this are no longer available to my users.  I did see that Microsoft made a change to that policy... and is no longer available for users.  What are my options to set versioning parameters? Instead of 250 versions default i'd like to make that number much lower... corporately if i can... to say 10 last versions.

Joe,

The backend for OneDrive for Business is SharePoint.

When logged in as administrator for the library, you can click on the link for Traditional/Legacy view near the bottom left hand corner of the browser to reveal the old management ribbon. It may take a couple of clicks before it actually works.

Once in there, the Library Settings section will have what you need to set for versioning.

There may also be a global setting but we've not worked with that on the SP4B side of things only when managing SharePoint itself.
