OneDrive for Business or Next Generation Sync Client: Synchronization
Now we are in a transition phase. These days we have three different clients for synchronization.

And more often the users do not know, where they have to start the sync process.
This description is only for Office 365!

the arrows show, where you have to initiate the sync process.
You have installed Windows 8.1
You have to wait till end of march 2016, until the NGSC is available for this operating system

You see, that starting to sync to the cloud from the device is the best solution. That will work very well, because

||the same functionality will work for the Office 365 user. Normally you will have only one OneDrive for Business.|
If you are, for example, an IT consultant, you will have the ability, to add another OneDrive for Business account from a different tenant.
But we see, there is also a long way for Microsoft, to establish access to SharePoint Team Sites and Groups. And it’s not so easy, to establish a way, to navigate from your client to the right position , where your document library exist on your tenant. But let us surprise.
