Redirecting anything to Onedrive for Business

A while ago I wrote a script that can mount Teams Libraries and then redirect any local folder to them.

In many situations, this solution is a little overkill though, so I’ve also created a second version which simply allows you to redirect any local folder (including variable paths!) to any location in a user’s Onedrive folder.

The configuration is set through the registry, an example file is included.

It can be used as a onetimer or as logonscript, and it can also be used to migrate existing content or create hard links for specific local appdata folders.

OnedriveMapper 4.04 with auto reconnect

Version 4.04 OnedriveMapper now automatically reconnects drives (of any type) when the cookie expires. No more ‘broken’ mappings! The script is smart enough to detect if its just a connectivity issue (= do nothing) or an actual drive issue.

All improvements since 4.00:

  1. Auto Remap (automatically reconnect disconnected drives)
  2. Block the IE firstrun wizard properly
  3. Bugfix: properly handle existing shortcuts instead of throwing an error
  4. Increase Converged Drive (single mapping with sub-mappings) reliability
  5. Better cleanup of existing mappings
  6. Always force the ‘keep me signed in’ option
  7. Support for root-level mappings

Exporting ALL file info in O365 (Sharepoint, Teams, Onedrive, Groups)

For a recent customer case, we needed a meta-data export of ALL files in the entire O365 tenant, filenames, dates, modifications, sizes and unique ID’s.

It is tricky to actually get everything (Teams especially) and to handle any MFA you may (SHOULD!!) have configured on your admin accounts, but here you are:

Note that your admin account does have to have permissions on all sources the script identifies.
