Looking through the different Office 365 Enterprise plans the other day I noticed the following at the bottom:
4. Unlimited personal cloud storage for qualifying plans for subscriptions of five or more users, otherwise 1 TB/user. Microsoft will initially provide 1 TB/user of OneDrive for Business storage, which admins can increase to 5 TB/user. Request additional storage by contacting Microsoft support. Storage up to 25 TB/user is provisioned in OneDrive for Business. Beyond 25 TB, storage is provisioned as 25 TB SharePoint team sites to individual users.
shifting to OneDrive for business at our company. But the OneDrive for business
client is acting differently compared to the Windows sync client when copying
files to a file server.
folder redirection or Windows synchronization you just add files to the
synchronization folder – and that’s it. When connection is present it will
With OneDrive for business it’s different. When you want to synchronize
files, you add it to the synchronization folder as normal. The client then creates
a list of content to be copied to OneDrive for business, and the list is passed
along to the backend system of OneDrive.
Having internet connection while adding a load of files to be synchronizing
– and then removing the connection (or shutdown the computer) is dangerous.
Microsoft have backend timer jobs running to check if the files on the received
list is uploaded properly. It also checks if the files is uploaded incorrectly
or if there are files form the list that have not been synchronized.
Those files are removed by server, and this activity is shown as
someone deleted the file. This is a part of the cleanup that is running as part
of the OneDrive backend backup.
Since OneDrive is a bidirectional synchronization – a deletion on the
web portal will also affect the computers folder when it is turned on.
And since the file was never copied to the destination area in OneDrive
there is no backup.
