Mapping Onedrive for business

What if I wan’t to access my onedrive files in Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer or the Onedrive for business app. The Onedrive for business App works fine (sometimes) for accessing the files from a laptop or workstation but it syncronizes the contents to the local drive which is fine in. But when the users are working in a Remote Desktop or Citrix Environment you do not want to synronize every users ondrive files to the session host, accessing the files from a web browser is also not optimal.

This article will show you how to access your onedrive for business files by adding a networkplace. This guide is based on a Remote Desktop farm based on Windows Server 2012 R2, the users are using ADFS with SSO to connect to Office 365, this is not required but I have not tested it in any other way.
