Microsoft 365 - OneDrive


OneDrive for Work or School allows users to keep all files in a one location in the Microsoft 365 cloud, with the ability to access from a phone, tablet, or computer. The versatile feature set of OneDrive allows for easy access and collaboration. Some of the features include:

  • Access files from anywhere with an internet connection
  • Create, edit and share documents regardless of device
  • 5 TB storage quota with 250 GB maximum file size (Please note: this is subject to change based on Microsoft's recent announcement about a move toward pooled storage)
  • Use document version history to easily restore files to a previous version
  • Sync and work with files in Windows Explorer or Mac Finder with the OneDrive sync client
  • Save local disk space with OneDrive Files On-Demand
  • Integration with other Microsoft 365 products
