Hello,

is it possible to synchronize a shareppont folder to a network drive? I need to set up a Tableau report based on excel files stored in Sharepoint and I would need those files to synchronize to the Tableau server.

Thank you very much

Valeria

No, the OneDrive sync is designed to run on a client OS like Windows 10. You can't install it on a server and have it sync when the server is logged out. Also, you can only sync to local drives.

Have a look at the Layer2 Solutions Cloud Connector. We have used this to achieve what you are talking about. Full Disclosure - our company are Layer2 partners.
