I have my shared drive synced up in c:\ on my laptop. so it pts all the files in folder

"C:\OneDrive - MyOrgName.com". This is perfect.

 

Another user has shared folder xyz with me. When i sync that the folder "xyz" isn't sync under "C:\OneDrive - MyOrgName.com". It's gets sync under "C:\MyOrgName.com" as  "C:\MyOrgName.com\user2 xyz". i.e. it's in a separate folder. How do do I specify that sync folders should get created as "c:\OneDrive - MyOrgName.com\xyz".

 

Note - I have a powerquery program which is configured to pickup the files from "c:\OneDrive - MyOrgName.com\xyz" so that it will execute consistantly on xyz folder owners machine and also on other user's machine with whom xyz folder is shared.

Hi @Pravinptpldemo,

 

Have you tried adding the directory that's been shared with you as a shortcut? 

 
 

BY going to your OneDrive in a browser > Shared > Shared with you.  You should be able to click 'Add shortcut to my files' and this will then sync as if it's in your OneDrive.
