If I have library with 2 folders, and John Smith have access to only one folder - would both be visible for him, if he connects this lib with OneDrive for Business? Does security trimming work in OneDrive too?


Security trimming works across SharePoint. As long as you don't have read access, you cannot see the content.

    Security is respected by the client. – Trevor Seward Jun 13 '18 at 17:38
  • I confused You. I mean "permissions" control, does it work if lib is shared in OneDrive, or not – Gennady G Jun 13 '18 at 17:43
  • Again, the OneDrive client respect permissions in SharePoint. OneDrive the service runs on top of SharePoint. – Trevor Seward Jun 13 '18 at 17:44
