Microsoft OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud service that competes with Dropbox and company. The difference is that Microsoft is gradually integrating OneDrive with its other products. This allows you to easily save Word documents, for example, directly to OneDrive and have them accessible from any device.
The service is free and requires only a Microsoft account. Then you need to open the OneDrive page and activate it. You will receive an application for your operating system that you must install on your computer. You can also install applications on your mobile devices later, but your files will also be accessible through a web browser.
After launching the application, you need to select the folders to sync with the server. Every time you put a file in them, it will be uploaded automatically. You can customize the other settings as you wish.
The free account receives 5GB of space, and there are also paid services with up to 100GB capacity.
With Microsoft OneDrive, you have access to everything and anywhere with your OneDrive: your photos, documents, and other important files are accessible to you from your phone, tablet, PC, or Mac. In short, your files and information are not limited to a single computer or device.
OneDrive is included with your Microsoft account if you have Windows 8 or later. It’s like having an additional hard drive that you can access from any of your devices, ensuring that the data you store there are always accessible. You don’t have to send yourself things over email or carry about (and maybe lose) a USB flash drive. Instead, you can access your files on OneDrive whether you’re working on a presentation on your laptop, browsing images from your last family trip on your new tablet, or checking your grocery list on your phone.
You may add files to OneDrive that are already on your computer by copying or transferring them from your computer. You have the option of saving new files to OneDrive so that you may access them from any device and share them with others. Additionally, if your PC has a built-in camera, you can have copies of your camera roll automatically saved to OneDrive, ensuring that you always have a backup.
