Wiping OneDrive Files on BYOD
An employee leaves the company and the Admin proceeds with the offboarding procedures.
All users permanently work remotely with BYOD and keeps their devices if they were to leave the company.
ODFB is essential for all users.
All users are on Business Premium subscription and native AAD and Win10/11Prof.
Important! If the deleted user used a personal computer to download files from SharePoint and OneDrive, there's no way for you to wipe those files they stored on their computer. They will continue to have access to any files that were synced from OneDrive.
Besides signing of I.P. acknowledgement forms, what's the Admin's options to make sure business ODFB data is removed from the device, either manually(remotely), or automatically?
The Admin currently completes the offboarding process, one of the tasks is obviously deleting the User Account. But shouldn't there be trigger somehow which wipes synchronized files (from SharePoint Online libraries) to be automatically removed from the device ? I understand that the current File Explorer function of right-clicking on a synced file and then choosing "Free up space" and then Signing out of OneDrive are technically a method of removing the files directly on the local machine but remotely in a sustainable way ?
What are the Admin's options?
