If Cloud Drive Mapper detects the OneDrive Sync client is already active on a machine it's installed on, you can use this conditional override feature to get CDM to perform different actions.

Simply set up a regkey SyncClientDetectionOverride to either HKCU or HKLM

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IAM Cloud\CloudDriveMapper
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IAM Cloud\CloudDriveMapper

The value of the regkey will vary depending on what you want the conditional override to do.

This uses a bitmask that allows you to calculate your own behaviours by adding multiple reference numbers together.

  • NoFolderRedirection = 1
  • FolderRedirectionToLocal = 2
  • DoNotMapOneDrive = 4
  • DoNotMapExternalOD = 8
  • DoNotMapSharePointStatic = 16
  • DoNotMapTeams = 32
  • DoNotMapSPGroups = 64
  • DoNotMapSPSites = 128
  • DoNotMapFullConverge = 256


Please note '3' (1+2) is an invalid combination as 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive, if you enter 3 it will behave like 2.



Example values:


1 = Switches off folder redirection


2 = The root location used by CDM Folder Redirection switches from within the mapped OneDrive to the OneDrive for Business sync folder. The redirected folder paths set-up within CDM stay intact. 


5 (1+4) = Switches off Folder Redirection and do not map a drive to OneDrive - but other drive mappings e.g. to SharePoint will stay intact.

6 (2+4) = Does not map to OneDrive, and Folder Redirection stays active but switches the root redirection location to the OneDrive for Business sync folder. The redirected folder paths set-up within CDM stay intact.

16 = No SharePoint static URL drives are mapped - but OneDrive mappings and converged drives would remain intact if present.


20 (4+16) = No OneDrive mappings or SharePoint static paths - but converged drives would stay intact.


Please note that if no sync client is detected, these settings will be ignored.
