Microsoft OneDrive

Tags Onedrive

OneDrive is an online storage service that allows you to upload, backup, create, view, edit, and share files with a 1 TB storage limit. By backing up your data in the cloud, it will remain safe if your computer is lost, stolen, physically damaged, or compromised.

As part of Microsoft Office 365, you receive 1 TB of storage in OneDrive for free. OneDrive will create a folder on your hard drive that is synced to the cloud. Since any files you put in this folder will be uploaded to OneDrive, you can access them from other computers and devices.
