Synchronization between SharePoint Workspace 2010 and SharePoint 2013 Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Please let us know if it is possible to sync SP Online 2013 lists and libraries and SharePoint Workspace 2010.

    We have an issue wherein the user is trying to take the files and folders in existing lists and libraries in the Online sites offline, onto user local system but is getting the below error.

    User is the site owner having Full Control in the lists and libraries and also the top-level site.

    The 2010 workspace is synchronizing successfully with the SP 2010 environment sites.


    SharePoint workspace cannot connect to the SharePoint site.

    The SharePoint site is having problems.

    The SharePoint location contains a typing error.


    -Check your internet connection to ensure its working.

    -Verify the SharePoint site is Online in your web browser.

    -Connect or retype the SharePoint location.



    Thanks & Regards, Sudheer

  • To the best of my knowledge you can't use SharePoint Workspace 2010 with SharePoint Online (which is based on SharePoint 2016).  You can use the OneDrive for Business next gen sync client to take selected folders from OneDrive or SharePoint Online libraries offline.  I would suggest you look into implementing that instead of SharePoint Workspace.  Two additional points should be noted:

    • YOu need the most recent version of the Next Gen client to sync SharePoint Online Libraries.
    • The Next Gen client can not sync SharePoint online lists.  It can only sync libraries.
