    OneDrive Shared Folder not Sharing Files


    I created a View-Only Shared OneDrive Folder with another person.


    I have confirmed that this folder is visible on their OneDrive Account and was downloaded onto all their devices.


    I then added files to the Folder, but the files themselves have not been shared. The files are visible in my account, on all my devices, but on their side, the Folder remains empty.


    Did I miss a step?


    P.S. - both of us are running Win10Pro with all the updates installed.

    :)

    Its should be indefinite. I have a shared folder with a friend of mine for about two years now. Is it automatically cutting off?

    OneDrive Shared Folder question

    Hi leonhart1981

    OneDrive is very location sensitive . . .

    If you move a shared folder, OneDrive will just see that the folder no longer exists in its original location and not know that it has been moved, you would need to re-share the folder in its new location

    It is like, if say, you have a Word document in your Documents folder saved from Word, that is then added to the Recent File list in Word, if you close Word and move that file in File Explorer, then try to open it from the Word recent file list, Word will tell
    you the file no longer exists, because it does not know you have moved the file outside of Word . . .
