Changing default folder provisioning language during Known Folder Moves
Major update: Announcement started
Applied To: All
Known Folder Move must provision new folders on the service when the corresponding folders (Desktop, Documents, Pictures) do not exist. When creating these new folders, it has to pick a language in order to name these folders. With this change we will default to the Windows Display Language rather than use the OneDrive Site language. As a result, newly provisioned folders will be created and named in the Windows Display Language.

NOTE: this message is for IT admins managing the OneDrive sync app in a Windows Server enterprise environment that uses Active Directory Domain Services.

[Key Points]

  • Timing: December 10, 2020
  • Action: Review for awareness

[How this will affect your organization]

Any new Known Folder Moves that you are planning to do in a multi-lingual environment will use the Windows Display Language when provisioning new folders on the service. If you wish to avoid this you can pre-provision these folders on the service before Known Folder Move.

[What you need to do to prepare]

You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
