Microsoft announces long anticipated OneDrive client feature

The Redmond, WA software behemoth, just added a couple of long anticipated, and some would add - overdue features and functionality to the desktop sync client for OneDrive. Users can now sync shared OneDrive for Business folders and SharePoint libraries. The full text of the announcement is bellow:

"Updated feature: SharePoint sites syncing with the new OneDrive sync client


The latest version of OneDrive sync supports syncing of shared OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online sites. Starting mid-August, the “Sync” button on SharePoint site libraries and Office 365 Groups will point to the latest OneDrive sync app, as opposed to the previous OneDrive for Business sync client that it points to today. The new sync client will improve reliability and performance and will offer new features, such as selective sync, support for large files (up to 10 GB), and removal of the 20,000 file sync limit. Updates to the new sync client will occur independently of Office and Windows updates"

This allows for a better collaboration among business users, something competitors such as BOX and DropBox have had for quite some time now.
