What is OneDrive for Business?


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 much space do I have in One Drive?

The easiest way to find out how much OneDrive storage space you have, and how much is available to use,
is to sign in to OneDrive.com. You can also find out on your PC, in Settings:

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up,
    click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)

  2. Tap or click OneDrive.


Can I recover OneDrive files that I deleted?

To recover deleted OneDrive files, check your Recycle Bin on your desktop, or go to the OneDrive website and tap
or click the Recycle bin link in the lower-left corner.

How can I check whether files are still uploading and downloading?

You can see upload and download progress in the OneDrive app, in File Explorer, and also from the OneDrive icon
in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar. (You might need to click the Show hidden icons arrow
next to the notification area to see the OneDrive icon.)

Right-click the OneDrive icon to do other things, such as:

  • Start a sync to get OneDrive to check again for changes, pause a sync to temporarily stop uploading or
    downloading files, or try to resolve sync issues.

    or set some file types to automatically save to OneDrive.



How can I browse files shared with me and Office documents I've worked on recently?

Sign in at OneDrive.com. On the left panel under OneDrive, click or tap Recent to see things you've recently
worked on. Click or tap Shared to see items shared with you, or that you have shared with others.
