Setting up a OneDrive (Personal) Network Location

Please follow the steps below to map a OneDrive account as a Network Location within Right Networks.

If your OneDrive account has become disconnected, you will find instructions at the bottom of the page to help reconnect it.

Adding OneDrive as a Network Location

1. Go to the OneDrive website www.onedrive.com in Internet Explorer from within the Right Networks environment.

4. Click on Files in the top left.


5. Copy the CID code located at the end of the URL similar to the one shown below.


6. Open the Windows Explorer in Right Networks and click on File.

9. Select Choose a custom network location and then select Next.

10. Enter the address https://d.docs.live.net/, followed by the CID code you got from the instructions above. The full URL should look similar to the following: 

  • https://d.docs.live.net/8B1B359CF44ED84A

11. Enter the name that will be associated with the network location. We suggest calling it OneDrive.

12. You will now be able to Open and Save documents to this folder from within any application as well as navigate to it from the File Explorer.

Reconnecting a Disconnected OneDrive Account

Occasionally, OneDrive drive mapping will break itself for security purposes and need to be reconnected. Should this occur, please follow these steps:

1. Make sure Windows Explorer is closed.

2. Open Internet Explorer.

3. Go to www.onedrive.com and log in with your Office 365 credentials.

  • The user must select the check box for Keep me signed in. If this check box is not selected the mapping will not work correctly.

4. Launch OneDrive, This should reestablish the connection. To confirm, open Windows Explorer and confirm you can see the OneDrive network location.
