Cloud Storage – Microsoft OneDrive

Along with its traditional offerings of the Windows operating system and its Office productivity suite, Microsoft also offers a cloud storage service, OneDrive.

The free plan offers 5 GB of storage, but it’s possible to upgrade this for a monthly fee – and if you have a subscription to Office 365, this includes 1TB of OneDrive storage space.

Personal, Home, Business and Enterprise O365 customers all have 1 TB of storage space as standard, but some Business and Enterprise solutions also have access to unlimited personal storage (with some caveats) and SharePoint, which we’ll discuss in more depth in later posts.

As a cloud storage service, OneDrive has a few benefits, such as:

  • Secure data transfer and storage as standard,
  • Integration with Windows operating system,
  • Large storage space,
  • Collaborative functions and secure link sharing,
  • Integration with Office 365,
  • Access to files, anywhere, on any device,
  • File recovery and version history,
  • Mobile app for phones and tablets,
  • Store files and folders for offline use on mobile devices and PCs,
  • Control over which files and folders are synced to each individual device.

Of course, many of these features are standard for cloud storage solutions on the whole, (some of which we’ll cover in future blog posts), but OneDrive has the benefit of being integrated directly with O365 and Windows because it’s developed by Microsoft, and designed to work seamlessly.
