Similar to this post:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onedrivefb-mso_win10-mso_o365b/how-to-st...

 

But I tried looking where that suggests and it is grayed out.

 

I can add folders from SharePoint to my Explorer by choosing "Sync"... but I do not see the typical options to stop syncing them.

 

In OneDrive settings only shows "1 location is syncing" - OneDrive... doesn't show each library separately.  In folders doesn't show the libraries only OneDrive folders.

 

There is no right click stop syncing options.

 

This is all new client.  No groove running.  I am SharePoint admin.

 

Thanks,

Terry

If there’s no synced folder and none in settings, it appears there’s no SP folders syncing :)

@adam deltinger There is a synced folder in Explorer "I can add folders from SharePoint to my Explorer by choosing "Sync"". Which works fine.

 

But in the OneDrive for business app nothing shows up for the synced folders.  Like the link I put in the post.

 

Also no right click options to stop syncing.

 

Thanks,

Terry
