Sync a library starting from the OneDrive for Business menu

It's best to sync libraries by visiting them in a web browser, as described in the previous sections. This saves you the trouble of entering a specific web address in the sync app wizard. However, if you want, you can start the sync app wizard using the OneDrive for Business menu.
1.    In the Windows notification area, select the OneDrive for Business icon and then select Sync a new library.

2.    Enter the web address of the library you want to sync in the sync app wizard, and then select Sync Now.
If you haven't synced any libraries to your computer, the wizard prompts you to sync your OneDrive for Business library, and references its web address.

If you want to sync a different library, select Sync a different library instead and then enter the web address of the SharePoint library you want to sync.
