I treasure a lot the sync functions of private chat to the designate folder on OneDrive :-

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/sharepoint-onedrive-interact

 

However, two problems arise in my account :-

 

1. "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder is never organised in user folders, so all files go to same folder. and;

2. Files from a certain number of users cannot be saved.

 

Anything that can help rectify?

Are you talking about files that are shared on private chats? If so, for 1 this is by design...for 2: Can you be more specific about what problems are you facing at?

I read again and think maybe that's because of my misunderstanding :-

 

"For every user, the OneDrive folder Microsoft Teams Chat Files is used to store all files shared within private chats with other users (1:1 or 1:many), with permissions configured automatically to restrict access to the intended user only."

 

Does it mean that while the file I shared to others are automatically synced to "Microsoft Team Chat Files" (so that others may have access), but files from other users sent to me aren't synced to my OneDrive?

 

If so I would really love to find a way to have all the files shared to be directly synced to my OneDrive...
