Hey all,

 

Is it possible to synchronize a singe file from SharePoint to OneDrive? I know it's possible to synchronize entire libraries but i just want to do it with a couple of files.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Alexander,

 

If you use the latest version of Windows and OneDrive you have One Drive on Demand and when you select to sync a library of SharePoint, by default the files will be available on Cloud and you can select to make available offline.

 

Please see these links.

Hi Nuno,

If my understanding is correct then the "old" answer was providing solution to sync a library/folder. I would be interested in syncing individual files in different folders (like the original question was put).

Hi @pfi-pfi,

 

With files on demand when you sync a library you can chose what do you want offline if you just want to sync only a file you cannot chose to not use files on demand and select only what you want.
