What is One Drive? It is a cloud storage provider by Microsoft.

So what is cloud storage?  Well instead of putting a file on your home computer you are putting your files on Microsoft’s computer. Now to be more technical, your data will be stored on a server that is housed in one of the many data centers that Microsoft runs.

So why would I consider using the cloud, and what advantages are there to using the cloud?

  1. You can access your files from anywhere that has internet.
  2. You can access your files from almost any device. 
  3. You can share and collaborate with others on your files.

One Drive by default is installed on all Windows 10 computers.

If you have a Mac you can download and install One Drive.

One Drive is also able on smartphones running iOS or Android.

To install One Drive on your iPhone or iPad you will need to go to the App Store.

On Android devices, you have to go to the play store.

Simply search for One Drive and install it.  Sign in and all your documents uploaded to one drive will be accessible on any device that you are logged into via One Drive.

 

Until Next Time,
