How do I set up OneDrive for Business as a network drive?

Follow the instructions below to map OneDrive for Business as a network drive. This will allow you to access your OneDrive files the same way you access other files on your computer, but without taking up any storage space. However, your files will not be accessible when you do not have an Internet connection, and your experience may be impacted by slow Internet speeds. For the best experience, ITS recommends using the Next Generation Sync Client.
