OneDrive Shared Folder sync support rolling out to Windows 10 and other platforms

Users of Microsoft's OneDrive for most versions of Windows will soon be able to sync up content on shared folders on the cloud storage service with the folder's other co-owners. Microsoft is rolling out that support starting today, but it may take a few days before it is available for everyone.

Microsoft says:

"How does it work? We have a new action on OneDrive, called "Add to my OneDrive." Whenever you are using OneDrive on the web, or through the mobile app, you'll see this when you are browsing content that others have shared with you. Clicking "Add to my OneDrive" will add that folder to your OneDrive. From then on, whenever you browse your OneDrive, you'll be able to see any of the shared folders you've added. And on the sync client, when you select what folders to sync, you'll see all the shared folders you've added. Select the shared folder(s) you want and they'll immediately begin syncing to your PC or Mac."

PC users with Windows Vista, 7. 8 and the new Windows 10 will be able to use the Shared Folders sync feature in OneDrive, along with MacOS owners. The only exception is with Windows 8.1. Microsoft says that those users must upgrade to Windows 10 to enable the new OneDrive sync feature.
