We have our users want to use the 'Sync' and not the 'shortcut to OneDrive' for file on the Sharepoint sites.  

I was able to run from powershell:

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Set-SPOTenant -DisableAddShortcutsToOneDrive $True
WARNING: Users in your organization will no longer be able to add new shortcuts to their OneDrive while the feature is in Public Preview. However, existing shortcuts will remain functional.

Which is exactly what we want but... It persists.

 

Any help on removing this from the sites?

@RanchoJack I am having the same issue, by any chance did you get a solution for this?

There is a UserVoice about this - have a look here and vote for it too.

Best bet is to test that Powershell, and if it doesn't work, then raise a ticket to MS to get this resolved. This new feature isn't wanted by us either, and we want it turned off too.
