Hello @royraiz21 ,


You can use Intune to stop syncing personal accounts on OneDrive. 

Go to Configuration Profiles -> Create profile -> Windows 10 -> Administrative Templates and look there for OneDrive. Personal OneDrive.PNG 

Thank You This is really helpful @mikhailf 

Additionally wanted to understand when this policy is enabled, User wont be able to Sync Personal OneDrive, but they will be able to add there Personal Microsoft account in the OneDrive? 


Also, When i checked one of the organizational Machine in the regedit i saw the Value as 1, this means already personal Onedrive sync is disabled? 




Hello @royraiz21 ,


I think users will be able to add their Personal Microsoft accounts in the OneDrive, but those accounts won't be synced hence no data will be downloaded/uploaded.


If the value is set to 1 the personal OneDrive sync is disabled.
