What is OneDrive?

Answered by Ashley Lance

Learn a bit more about the program we use to backup all your files and allow you to access them wherever you are.

  • OneDrive is a Microsoft application which can save files to Microsoft's Cloud, meaning they are not stored directly on your computer's hardware.
  • You can access this straight from your desktop, or by opening your File Explorer and clicking on OneDrive.


Cool things:

  • If you lose your computer the files can be downloaded as they're also stored by Microsoft (it's also how we set up your new computers with all your old stuff when you transfer them in Year 10!)
  • You can also access your files from other devices by accessing OneDrive online or downloading the app.
