What is OneDrive for Business?

A: OneDrive for Business is an integral part of Office 365 or SharePoint Server, and provides place in the cloud where you can store, share, and sync your work files. You can update and share your files from any device with OneDrive for Business. You can even work on Office documents with others at the same time.

NOTE: OneDrive for Business is different from OneDrive, which is intended for personal storage separate from your workplace. OneDrive for Business is also different from your Office 365 team site, which is intended for storing team or project-related documents. If you have a small business, it’s ideal to set up your file storage to use OneDrive for Business and Office 365 team sites together.

How do I store my work documents and related files?

A: If you’re using Office 365, you get 1TB of space in the cloud for OneDrive for Business. To use this you can upload to the OneDrive for Business web application or install the OneDrive for Business desktop application on your PC/Mac, or IOS, Android or Windows Mobile device.

How is OneDrive for Business different from OneDrive?

A: Microsoft offers another storage service called OneDrive. You may already be using OneDrive to store documents and other content in the cloud. This service is different from OneDrive for Business:

  • OneDrive is online personal storage that you get with either a Microsoft account or Outlook.com. Use OneDrive to save documents, photos, and other files in the cloud, share them with friends, and even collaborate on content. You’re free to decide how you want to use it.
  • neDrive for Business is online storage intended for business purposes. Your OneDrive for Business is managed by your organization and lets you share and collaborate on work documents with co-workers. Site collection administrators in your organization control what you can do in the library.

Although you can’t connect your personal OneDrive to your Office 365 business account, you can copy or move files between them. To move files between your personal OneDrive account and OneDrive for Business follow these below

How do I copy files between personal OneDrive and OneDrive for Business?

  • Sync both versions of OneDrive to your local computer. See Sync OneDrive for Business or site libraries to your computer for more info.
  • Open both folders on your computer, and copy or drag files from one folder to the other.
  • Re-sync both folders with OneDrive.

NOTE: In the header or elsewhere on your SharePoint or Office 365 site, ‘OneDrive’ appears as an abbreviation of OneDrive for Business to keep things simpler.

Are my documents stored on OneDrive also available offline?

A : To access documents stored on OneDrive offline, you can install the OneDrive desktop app. The app creates a folder on your PC that automatically syncs documents between OneDrive and your computer, so you can work on your documents offline and be assured that they are always in sync.
