There was a long way from synchronize Files between your local machine and SharePoint Team Sites, Groups and OneDrive for Business. This session describes the implementation of Next Generation Sync Client (NGSC), the limitations and the competitors, Roadmap of NGSC Limitations of NGSC, the competitors (Dropbox, Box,… and OneDrive Personal) , what may be synchronized (OneDrive Personal, OneDrive for Business, Team Sites,…) and NGSC for administrators.
Nate’s Take :
Files on demand was just recently released in a Windows 10 update, but already 40 million files have been hydrated with it. Syncing OneDrive files has been a perennial support issue for us, but files on demand is minimizing those support needs. I didn’t know before this session that there is a light blue and dark blue cloud icon for OneDrive for Business, one indicated the old groove.exe sync client and one for the new client (NGSC). Hans also covers the limitations of each client and shares some new features like the somewhat recently announced in-context file type rendering. If OneDrive wasn’t your friend before, now is the time to make amends.
