Version 3.14 of OneDriveMapper has been released:
- added an ‘always reset IE cookies’ option
- completely revamped the way you configure mappings (make sure you read the help in the code!)
- optionally, map to Network Locations instead of Driveletters (thanks Tom!)
- Most options are no longer mandatory
- OnedriveMapper Cloud no longer supported (as announced last year)
- New and greatly enhanced Folder Redirection functions, including automatic copying of source content
- Optional client certificate selection based on certificate template name
- Automatic certificate refresh if no client certificate is present, when using client certificates as auth mode
- Some bugfixes and major code cleanup
- Usage of environment variable to determine mapping driveletter removed
As always, make sure to test before deploying to production, I’ve only tested Azure AD and a single ADFS setup.

I’ve taken information from several sources and written a single “Do It All – Onedrive For Business configuration script” for the Windows 10 Modern Management (Intune MDM Azure AD Join) scenario.
The script can be deployed through Intune to your Windows 10 MDM clients and will do the following silently:
- check latest O4B version and update to it
- detect O4B configuration, start auto config
- completely silent / invisible configuration with SSO
- optionally, enable Files On Demand
- optionally, redirect folders to Onedrive
- optionally, copy old content
O4BClientAutoConfig + source code.
Couple of changes done, partially with the help of Alan Wallace of Oregon Tech:
- Chunked uploading of large files
- Retry of uploads (up to 3 times)
- Warning when uploading 5k+ items to the same library
- Replace _w and _t folder improvement
- No longer force a verify when uploading folders to Sharepoint

Version 3.10 of OneDriveMapper has been released!
- handle the new tile / prompt that appears in IE login mode where Microsoft no longer always redirects to the portal
- Progress bar color is now a configurable option (cloud/non cloud)
- alphabetic ordering of configs (cloud only)
- Fixed auto update loop issue where auto update would break itself for subsequent updates.
- When restarting self (switching auth mode or auto updating) properly hide the console if this was set
Important Auto Update Instructions
If you were using Auto-Update, DO NOT do so for this version. Use the MSI to replace the old version (see last fixed issue).
New Azure AD Signin experience
As some may have read, Microsoft is previewing a potentially disruptive change without advance notice. My tenants don’t yet display the new behavior so I cannot test if OnedriveMapper will be affected. I haven’t heard of any issues yet 🙂

Onedrive for Business’s client, the new Next Generation Sync client, is awesome. Obviously.
So you want it on your devices, but Microsoft distributes it as .exe. Nasty, because I want to manage Windows 10 as mobile devices through Intune, and that only allowes me to distribute as MSI.
I created an MSI for Onedrive for Business’s Next Generation Client using Advanced Installer. Because I’m not allowed to redistribute Microsoft’s .exe, this MSI downloads the .exe from Microsoft’s website, it uses /silent and /takeover as installation switches.

I’ve been ‘mentioning’ it a few times here and there, wasn’t allowed to say too much….but now it is finally public, coming before the end of the year Onedrive will have a sync on demand feature, no longer requiring local storage on your device!
It will allow all of us OnedriveMapper users to switch to a fully supported Microsoft solution for Windows 10 users.
Quirky thing is, Windows 7 and 2008 / 2012 R2 are not in scope. Possibly another good one to vote on at uservoice 🙂
Note: O365Undo is also free and can probably help you fix your crytolocker problem more precisely as it is the next version of O365AntiCryptoLocker
At OGD we sometimes have to deal with users that got infected with CryptoLockers and have both automated and controlled systems in place to prevent damage or restore data to any fileshares. An infection on Sharepoint Online or Onedrive has not yet happened, but eventually it of course will and I like to fix things before they break.
As Sharepoint Online and Onedrive for Business natively use versioning on files, you basically have no real risk of losing data to Cryptolockers, your RPO (Restore Point Objective) is 0. However, restoring the previous versions of files is quite a lot of work if done manually, so your RTO (Restore Time Objective) could be weeks or more.
Unless of course, you use Powershell. I’ve written a script that will restore the most current previous version of any file in a given Document Library.
Example usage for a Onedrive site:
.\O365AntiCryptoLocker.ps1 -siteURL "https://o365mig-my.sharepoint.com/personal/test1_o365mig_onmicrosoft_com" -login "mylogin" -password "mypassword" -libraryTitle "Documents"
Or for a Sharepoint Online Site:
.\O365AntiCryptoLocker.ps1 -siteURL "https://o365mig.sharepoint.com/site1" -login "mylogin" -password "mypassword" -libraryTitle "Documents"
You’ll need the Sharepoint Client Components installed, and you’ll have to have sufficient permissions on the library and its files.
Version 0.9 of O365Migrator is now available as a free download.
What was changed?
- Differential transfer: upload only changed/new files. (does not process renames, moves and deletes yet!)
- Subfolder targeting: upload to a specific subfolder instead of the root if specified
- Better library name detection when admin and user have different language settings
You can find the new version here.
This is the second post in a series about moving to Onedrive for Business and/or Sharepoint Online from traditional fileshares and/or homedirectories, in bulk, without user interaction.
- Making your data compliant with Office 365 standards, and keeping it that way
- Moving the data (in bulk)
- User and endpoint transitioning
Many of my employer’s clients are transitioning to a Cloud First IT model. Think triple A, work anywhere, anytime, anyplace.
In the previous post, we’ve talked about requirements, making your data compliant and essentially preparing your environment for migration. Now that you’ve done that, your data should be in a more or less consistent state, it’s time to move it to the cloud!

Version 2.28 of OneDriveMapper has been released.
- Added support for Auto-Acceleration in Sharepoint Online in combination with ADFS (or other SSO solutions).
- Added a fix that would prevent mapping of the drive if a user was already logged in without the ‘keep me logged in’ checkbox checked.
