Hi - I'm not sure if this is an issue with SharePoint or with OneDrive.
We have an issue when trying to sync additional files/folders from a SharePoint library. If we go into our OneDrive settings and choose folders to sync, the folders will generally sync without an issue. However if we try to use the sync button directly from the SharePoint library, a window briefly opens saying 'Getting ready to sync...' and then nothing happens.
It's only seems to be an issue when we're already syncing some of the folders in that same library - it seems we cannot sync additional files or folders using that method...which is a little frustrating!
Is there any solution to this or is it a known issue?

Hi Guys - thanks for the replies.
I've tried it again but still no luck. I'm using edge, select the subfolder I'd like to sync, hit the sync button, I get the 'getting ready to sync...' box and then a request to open OneDrive (which I approve), but then a tray notification to say I'm already syncing the root folder.
Perhaps I need to get our IT support to check out configuration??

Thanks Adam - Seems a bit odd tho that once you've synced the root folder, you can't add subfolders from the browser. I know it works through the onedrive settings function, but seems like such a straightforward function to have available!
I'll keep trying however!

Sorry - I don't think I explained that correctly, or perhaps using the wrong terms.
I meant that I've synced some subfolders from the library already (not the entire library) so I have a link to the main folder within OneDrive and synced sub folders within it. What I've been trying to do within the browser is sync additional folders from that library, and that's the part that's failing. Unless I go into the OneDrive settings and add folders that way.
