What Is Microsoft OneDrive?

OneDrive is like a cloud-based version of the “My Documents” folder that you’ve come to rely on with your PC for years and years. When you create a document or need to open up one from the past, it’ll likely be stored in “My Documents” (ideally, organised a few sub-folders down).

With OneDrive, it’s the same idea, but instead of being stored in “My Documents” on your local work server, it’s stored offsite in the cloud, which means you can access that same file from your home office, while you’re on your way to work, or even while you’re away traveling for business. It even offers an offline sync engine so that you can keep working when you’re disconnected from the Internet.

When Should You Use OneDrive?

When you:

  • Don’t want to share. By default, any documents saved to OneDrive are private (unless you place them in the “Shared with Everyone” folder).
  • Want to share under very specific conditions, whether that’s in a limited capacity or within a specific timeframe.
