When I select "Start the new client" under "Sync Client for SharePoint" settings, what is going to happen to users who still work with Groove.exe? Does Sync with Groove still work? Any pitfalls to think about before switching to the new client?

Groove should continue syncing for those who already have sync's running, and would only change over to the OneDrive client if you run the command line switch to change o... Read More

Can you possibly supply a screenshot of what you're trying to do?
And are you doing the sharing from OneDrive itself, or from within OneNote?

My customer is running OneDrive client 17.3.6743.1212 (latest version) and synced a few SharePoint libraries (SP Online/ Office 365).

This setting was to force the use of the new, nextgen sync client when the Groove client was still predominant.  

We are planning to roll out ODFB shortly (no MDM/Intune yet).  The requirements from InfoSec team is to block dowloading, printing, coping and syncing to personal devices.  That's all achievable via MAM if the tenant is in "First release for everyone".  W
