Rename Onedrive Business root folder

Rename Onedrive Business root folder



Here is what I remember:
  1. In the Office 365 web admin pages, change the organization name to a shorter version (I used a 4 letter abbreviation). I had to wait about 24 hours for the change to go through Microsoft's systems.
  2. On the computer unlink OneDrive.
  3. Relink

That seems too easy, so I might be leaving something out, but I think the important part is waiting for the change to go through Microsoft's systems.



I also figured out a hack that allows the folder name to be completely changed, even the "OneDrive - " prefix.
  1. Exit/close OneDrive App from tray.
  2. Go to this directory: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive\settings\Business1
    1. Find ".ini" file with the long somewhat random name similar to this: 31c26d83-4db2-4503-a8g0-a3e14e7bcchd.ini
    2. Right click and choose Edit on the file above.
      1. At the end of the first line you will find the full path to your folder.
      2. Change the folder name to desired name.
    3. Save file and close.
  3. Go to your OneDrive folder and change the name to match choice above.
  4. Start OneDrive app.
