OneDrive – Storing Files

OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud storage. It is where you can securely keep files to access from anywhere on your different devices. OneDrive is like a traditional external drive, but available through the internet. Create a file on one device then open it later to carry on using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or phone without need to use a USB flash drive or email to yourself.

Sharing Files in OneDrive

Documents created or added to your OneDrive can be shared with classmates, teachers or tutors – Give read only, or full access to edit and co-author – even at the same time.  This has advantages over a method such as sending an email attachment which may be reject as too large, as it shares a live copy that reflects ongoing edit with collaborators. Each office file in OneDrive is versioned, a copy saved with each edit so you can review or restore previous versions.
