Hello

 

As we are know after deployment of OneDrive for Business the local folder names on systems as 
"c:\users\username\OneDrive - Organization Name". 

We want to change the location of this folder from user profile folder to different location. 

What is the best way to implement pushing thru GPO by change default install location.

 

Secondly what are the pros and cons after changing default location to other location?

 

Please share your thoughts.

Out of curiosity, why do you want to change the default location?

We are having some constraint in User profile folder. That is what we are looking for different location.
