OneDrive Functions You Need to Know About

We talk to a lot of people who use Office 365, I mean a lot. One thing that continues to amaze (and disappoint) me is the number of people who either a) didn’t know they had OneDrive or b) know they have it and don’t use it.

Here’s what you need to know (For clarity, we mean the Business Version of OneDrive when we say “OneDrive” in this post. As we’ve covered in previous posts, Microsoft can be confusing with their naming):

1. You get 1TB of storage.
If you use any of the Office 365 suites (E1 or greater, Business Essentials or greater, or their education/government counterparts) then you get 1TB of storage included. This is more than enough storage for the average user.

2. OneDrive can replace your local file storage on your PC.
Again, with 1TB, that’s usually more storage than most folks have on their PCs or Macs. If you get into the practice of saving your files to OneDrive, you can access those files from anywhere.

3. There are apps for iOS, Android, and Windows.
If you get into the habit of saving your files directly to OneDrive, you can then have access to your files no matter where you are or what platform you are on.

4. Backup
