OneDrive: Folder Backup for macOS

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC445742 · Published Oct 13, 2022

Message Summary

Folder Backup enables an admin and/or end-user to redirect the local macOS Desktop and Documents folder to OneDrive.  This allows the end user to keep using those folders to save their content while delivering the protection and access anywhere promise that OneDrive offers.  The feature and relative list entries are very similar to the Folder Backup experience that has been on Windows for a while.

Note: If your organization does not use macOS you can safely disregard this message.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82032

When this will happen:

Standard Release: We will begin rolling out mid-October and expect to complete by mid-November.

How this will affect your organization:

As the feature is rolled out, end users will be able to access this feature via OneDrive Sync Settings.  As end-users enroll in this feature all of their files within Desktop and Documents will be uploaded to their OneDrive for Business root folder.  

What you need to do to prepare:

  • Ensure that the Standalone OneDrive Sync client version 22.191 is rolled out within your workplace
  • Ensure that macOS 12.1 Monterey or later version of macOS is rolled out within your workplace
  • Enable the best plist entries for your workspace once the feature has rolled out (KFMOptInWithWizard, KFMSilentOptIn, KFMBlockOptIn, KFMBlockOptOut)
