Cloud based file storage from Microsoft
What is OneDrive?
OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud service that connects you to all your files. You can save, edit, share, and sync your files from any device with an internet connection and collaborate on documents with other students and staff. When you use OneDrive with an account provided by the University of Aberdeen, it will be referred to as 'OneDrive for Business'.
How do I access OneDrive?
Sign in at https://www.office.com/ with your University firstname.lastname@example.org – e.g. email@example.com – and password. Once signed in you can launch OneDrive from the app launcher.
Or if you have a University device you can simply double-click the OneDrive icon on your taskbar.
Once logged in, you can drag and drop files from your computer or H Drive to OneDrive for Business. For further help with this type of file transfer please see the Guides on this page.
Once a user leaves you will continue to have access to a resource shared with you for a period of time, however we strongly recommend making a copy of these resources to ensure long term access. See OneDrive Data Retention & Retrieval guide.
