    This is not technically possible with the current non-persistent architecture of Box Drive.

    When the ‘Box’ folder disappears (whens users quit, update, log out) Windows folder redirection creates a new ‘Box’ folder to continue to redirect content. This forks the redirection out of Box Drive.

    Workarounds have been investigated heavily, but the cost to implement is too large to commit to the roadmap now.

    Box, this is still a critical need. We have been using Box Sync for years, with user Desktop, My Documents, Pictures, Favorites all redirected to Box Sync, so that users can access their work files from anywhere, and also synchronize across multiple devices (laptop to desktop, etc.). Two of our users recently "upgraded" to Box Drive, and this has completely broken their workflow, creating significant IT labor waste. We're now in the process of moving them back to Box Sync, so please do not EOL Sync until you have resolved this issue in Drive. Thank you.
