OneDrive Support for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 Ending January 1, 2022

Microsoft has announced that they are dropping support for OneDrive desktop on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 devices beginning January 1, 2022.

So, what does this mean in practice for Administrators and owners of these devices?  This means that if you are using Windows 7 or 8.1, you will no longer receive feature updates, but will receive security fixes until January 10, 2023 (Windows 7 clients will need to participate in the Extended Security Update program).

Users on Windows 8 have already had the support window extended from January 2016 and on January 10, 2022, the sync client will no longer sync to Microsoft 365 services.

MadWolf is available to assist in the upgrade of staff machines to either Windows 10 or Windows 11 for the best experience.
