OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business is a personal library intended for storing and organising your work documents. As an integral part of Office 365 or SharePoint Server , OneDrive for Business lets you work within the context of your organisation, with features such as direct access to your organisation’s address book.

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 team site, which is intended for storing team or project-related documents.

If you’re using Office 365, you get 1TB of space in the cloud for OneDrive for Business and related site content. If your OneDrive for Business library is hosted on a SharePoint server in your organisation, your organisation’s administrators determine how much storage space is available.

All files that you store in OneDrive for Business are private initially – only you can see them – unless you decide to share them. You can easily share a file with everyone in your organisation by placing it in the Shared with Everyone folder, for example. You can also share files with specified co-workers so you can collaborate on projects. If you’re signed-in to Office 365, you may even be able to share with partners outside of your organisation, depending on what your company allows.

To use your OneDrive library, select OneDrive (short for OneDrive for Business) in the header at the top of a SharePoint or Office 365 page.
