** Also note that there is a 50 MB maximum single file size. You cannot upload a file that is larger than 50 MB to your SkyDrive.  
 
*Select the Sync a Folder link, find the folder on your laptop that you would like to synchronize with your SkyDrive, and select it. From now on, whatever you save inside that folder will be copied into your SkyDrive. It can be accessed from the web and you can install Windows Live Mesh on any other computer that you own, designate a local folder and synchronize it with the SkyDrive folder you just created. That would create three copies of the content in that folder: one on your original laptop, one online in your SkyDrive, and one on your second computer.

About this article

This article provides an overview of Microsoft's OneDrive for Business cloud storage service. It is intended for both students and employees.

What's OneDrive for Business?

Microsoft OneDrive for Business is an industrial-strength, business-class file storage and management service built on Microsoft's SharePoint technology. OneDrive for Business is in the cloud, a geeky way of saying that your files are stored off campus on a Microsoft file server that you can access via the Internet. OneDrive for Business is an important component of Microsoft's new vision for business productivity and collaboration, anchored by their web services: Office 365 and SharePoint Online. Every WSU student and employee has a OneDrive for Business.

IMPORTANT NOTE

"OneDrive for Business" and "OneDrive" are two, separate cloud storage apps.

  • "OneDrive for Business" is included in your Office 365 Suite provided to you by WSU and provides you with 1T of cloud storage space.
  • "OneDrive" is a personal cloud storage application that you need to setup on your own for your personal use if you wish to use it.

The easiest way to compare OneDrive for Business to a personal OneDrive account is that the Office 365 OneDrive for Business offers more features and is mainly used for professional organizations, whereas regular OneDrive is mainly for personal use and has less features. WSU does not support a Personal OneDrive account.
