Files - Do you sync your files from Teams to File Explorer?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] almost 3 years ago.See history

Microsoft Teams gives you the ability to sync your files to File Explorer. A lot of people don't realize this feature exits. Let's see how to do this.

Instead of going to Teams | Files to upload or find a file, you can:

  1. Find you Team folder in Teams
  2. Open the folder in SharePoint
  3. Click Sync (signed on OneDrive)
  4. Done - a new folder will be available in your File Explorer

Now you can manage your files just as a normal document in your machine.

Warning: If you don't want to be part of that Team anymore, don't delete the folder in File Explorer - This will sync with Teams and remove the files there too. You should go to OneDrive | Settings | Stop Sync.
