Thanks to MS5Joseph the problem is now solved!

Issue was on Microsofts side and should now be fixed!



As many of you have noticed, there is a slight, pretty big, problem when trying to add the folder in Office. I haven't been able to pinpoint the actual issue with this and no response has been given to me from MS regarding this.


I have been able to reproduce the issue my self when trying to run it on a client that was connected to a domain, so my best guess at the moment is that there is an issue with some securitysetting in Windows. Loging out from Office and then back in again seems to solve the issue for most, but not for all. Also some has reported to me that restarting the computer before logging back in to Office has solved the issue. Also I have noticed that when logging in to MS from another browser than IE can generate an error, so I would recomend setting IE as default browser for the purpose of tests. (Then change back again)


I will update as soon as I get any further information!


Both Dropbox and Google Drive have become more popular to share files with others and to keep an extra copy of documents, pictures and so on.
