If you are a Microsoft 365 global or SharePoint admin, you can allow your users to sync files that are protected by the IRM (Information Rights Management) policy. This way, IRM-protected SharePoint document libraries and OneDrive content can be synced with the new OneDrive sync app.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you enable this feature:
- Disable the previous OneDrive sync app (Groove.exe) to prevent reliability issues.
- Install RMS client on the computers of users in which you wish to enable this feature. (You can download the software package on a network share and deploy it across to your users.)
- Now, users must browse to the respective SharePoint library and click the Sync button.
