    Office 365 Sky Drive and Home Area Sync

    Hi,

    I am wondering if anyone has seen any tools that will allow us to Sync our home areas and sky drive please? The only thing that MS provide is designed to be run on the desktop, its not suitable for our needs. We need something to run on the server.

    Thanks

    Im thinking i could write something to do this. Get a script to map a skydrive network drive, sync the contents (using robocopy), dis-connect and then sync the next home area. I don't think it would be very efficient though.

    Are you planning to map their skydive as primary drive ? Guessing you have no media editing requirements ?

    No, we will be using the internal file server as the primary. We can take a full library of backups that way. Also if the internet goes off we are stuffed. That's why i am after a sync solution, being stored in 2 places.

    Its not for backup, just to add more options to edit files etc. You can get a neat iPad app and stuff.

    Did you make any progress with this?

    I would like to set up so all our pupils home folders are synced with the office 365 onedrive, but short of installing the app on all our workstations and getting them to set it up themselves I cannot see how to do this.

    Nope never got anywhere. Put the app on all the machines and configuring it would be a nightmare!

    Doesn't work as you have to authenticate multiple times

    Thanks for the script, not exactly what I am looking for but I'll have a play with it and see if I can get it to work.
