What happens if a new employee gets a computer with the NGSC installed, they have not visited O365 (so they don't have a ODfB site created) and they put files into the folder on their computer?

 

Will the sync process cause the creation of the ODfB site or

The NGSC has its own update mechanism, looking 1 time the day, if Microsoft has released a new version and will update itself.

So to me it seems a problem that using OneDrive in the business enviroment causes so many tray icons.  I feel like the UI could be designed a little different where you can mange multiple accounts and link from the single running instance.  For example, I

Are your OneDrive sites on-premises or are you in hybrid mode with those sites actually running in O365/SPOnline?

Have you thought of installing the Next Gen Sync client to replace the groove.exe version? It does a much better job.

I have the latest (ends in .1212) client and am still seeing an issue that has been there since the initial release back in Sept/Oct.

How do you remove the Read-Only so you can edit the file. Most spreadsheets are a work in progress where you publish and then change the sheet.

Does it happen with libraries that require check out, or libraries with required columns or metadata?
