OneDrive For Business | Admin Access to a user’s ODFB
Scenario: An Employee leaves the company. What happened with his documents, stored in OneDrive for Business?
So here is a quick guide, if you want to do download and upload the data as an administrator, using Next generation sync client
Enable access as an Administrator in Office 365 to the users ODFB account
- Connect as an administrator to the users ODFB with NGSC
- After complete syncing, connect to a different users ODFB
- Upload (sync) the data to this new users using NGSC
If you only have a few users, this might be practicable. For the first step you need a PowerShell Script. And here you find the description and the complete code
But for Midsize and enterprise companies this takes to much time. It would be better, to migrate the data direct for one users OneDrive for Business to another Users OneDrive for Business, using BitTitan’s MigrationWiz. This is a Software as a Service tool. You only need a Browser and an internet connection. So I have written a blog post about this Scenario here.
