OneDrive Tips

Microsoft OneDrive enables you to save files and photos securely online. From backing up files to sharing and collaborating on projects, Microsoft OneDrive has a lot of features that you may not be aware of. Let’s take a look at OneDrive.

OneDrive tips

Here are some of the key things you can do with OneDrive:

- Microsoft 365 subscriptions include 1TB of OneDrive storage, that’s enough to store roughly 500,000 photos and thousands of word documents.

- Turn on PC folder backup to automatically sync your Windows Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders to OneDrive. Doing this backs up, protects and makes the files available across all your devices.

- Access your files online by signing into your OneDrive account on the web. Also, if you lose your device or it crashes, you can always find your OneDrive files online.

- When you're on the go, you can use the OneDrive mobile app to access or share files straight from your mobile device..

- Easily share and collaborate on files, folders, and photos with your colleagues.

- Use Personal Vault to add extra protection to sensitive photos and files, like credit cards, drivers licenses, passports etc....

- Accidentally deleted a file? Track down the deleted files quickly in the recycle bin which is available only on OneDrive for web.

- Turn on AutoSave on your Word, Excel and Powerpoint files incase of a techincal fault or your battery dies.

- Add another layer of security to your OneDrive account by using two-step verification across your entire Microsoft account.

- You can easily manage your storage by seeing how much you have left and what’s using up the most space.

- Mark selected files for offline access on your phone or PC. That way, if you lose your internet connection you can still work on your files on your phone or PC.

- Scan, sign and send a document with the OneDrive mobile app.

- You can get a quick summary of activity on shared files using the file details pane, including who the file is shared with, recent activity, file size/type and more.

- You can free up extra storage space on your Windows 10 PC. Storage Sense automatically frees up space by making local files that you haven’t used recently online-only again. Online-only files stay safe in OneDrive and are accessible from your PC, browser or mobile app as long as you have an internet connection.

- Use version history to restore any OneDrive file to a previous point in time, up to 30 days after being modified. If one of your collaborators made changes but shouldn't, simply revert them.
