How to syncronize a Physical Folder on Another Location without Duplicating the files

The problem

I want to synchronize my F: drive with one drive without any loss of data or duplicating any files. My Username on the computer is jorte, and my onedrive is configured locally at: "C:\Users\jorte\OneDrive" How can I solve that?

The solution

The solution is to create a symbolic link between the two locations.

1. Open a CMD window as an administrator. and run,
Mklink /D "C:\Users\jorte\OneDrive\Ddrive" "F:"

This solution works for "Onedrive Personal" (white cloud) and also works for "Onedrive For business" and always remember that there are invalid file names that can be researched on the documentation
