Hi Ryan,

If other people shared a folder with you, you can go to Shared with me section in your OneDrive for Business>Click into the folder>select the files that needs to be copied to your OneDrive>Click Copy to button from ribbon to move it.

For files outside a folder in Shared with me section, you can try switching back to classic OneDrive for Business by clicking Return to classic OneDrive on the bottom-left corner, and then try the steps below to copy the file shared with me to your OneDrive for Business:

1.  Click the three dots next to a document>click VIEW LIBRARY to go to the library where the original document is stored.

2.  Then click the three dots next to the document>click three dots once again>Move or Copy>select the folder you want to copy the file to>Check Copy this item to the selected folder, otherwise the file will be moved out from the file owner's OneDrive for Business>Click Copy.

Feel free to let us know if anything above is unclear.
