Synce OneDrive and SharePoint issue

basically speaking when i sync both my OneDrive for Business folder and my company SharePoint Document Library. everything works great. but then if i got the SharePoint library and select a folder to "Add shortcut to my files" it breaks the sync to my computer and gives me the following error85909-image.png.


is there a way to sync both the SharePoint Library and the OneDrive folder with the shortcuts? or do i need to somehow disable the "add shortcut to my files" feature? can you do that?

Hi @Burhani-6931 ,

As per me test, I could also reproduce this scenario in my end. I couldn't add shortcut of a folder inside a library to OneDrive if you have synced the library to OneDrive and the same error like yours appeared. This is a default situation in OneDrive and there is no solution to it.

Once we can disable "add shortcut to OneDrive" feature using the PowerShell command: Set-SPOTenant -DisableAddShortcutsToOneDrive $true. However this command has been banned by Microsoft not long ago. So there is no way to disable that feature currently. You can vote up this user voice and share your idea under the post here: Disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" for a Document Library to let Microsoft know your requirement. It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft SharePoint products. What's more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.
