I’m looking for some guidance with a Windows registry issue I’m having:
Three years ago I created a Windows 10 image for about 10 workstations, and in that image I changed the registry to disable OneDrive here:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive\DisableFileSyncNGSC (Set integer to “0” to allow OneDrive.)
About a year later, we implemented OneDrive, so I changed that setting in the registry back to “enabled.” The issue I’m having is that each time we upgrade to a feature update (1709, 1803, etc.), that registry setting reverts back to disabled, and then OneDrive won’t launch until I manually make the registry change.
My main problem is that a user will not realize that OneDrive is not running, and they will continue to modify their files offline and not realize it. Without a OneDrive monitoring tool (which has been discussed here before) I don’t realize it’s broken until I check each machine after the feature update or they report a problem with syncing.
Any directions on how to make it stick permanently? I’d like to avoid relying on group policy, since I’m working towards moving to cloud-based management with Azure and Intune. I’ve been dealing with the issue manually so far, but I’m leaving soon for a new position and this is something I’d like to resolve for my predecessor. Thanks in advance.
