OneDrive for Business

Newbie here. Could someone point me in the direction as to how to back up OneDrive for Business folders/files to an external hard drive with Duplicati? I would be grateful. Thanks

Are you having any specific problems? One that might come up is described below.

Solution! Can’t backup OneDrive files to external HDD

Background information:
Save disk space with OneDrive Files On-Demand for Windows 10

No specific problems, I just need to know how to set up the back up using Duplicati.


There’s a chance that more recent changes in Duplicati have removed the need to pull all the files down by GUI request, but they definitely have to “look” like local files for Duplicati to process them. Certain network protocols such as SMB do a pretty good job of looking local (though actually local have some advantages). Newer methods are more complicated, but I “think” OneDrive is not a remote protocol, but does download.
