Microsoft OneDrive for Business, or OneDrive for Business, is a file-hosting service that is operated by Microsoft as part of its suite of online services. It allows users to store files as well as other personal data in the cloud. Files can be synced to a PC and accessed from a web browser or a mobile device, as well as shared publicly or with specific people.
Note: UW-Madison's Office 365 administrators cannot assist users in moving any data out of OneDrive for Business or OneDrive for Business.
No. However, you can merge the files by using the OneDrive for Business sync client (Windows only). If you want to move the files from your personal OneDrive for Business to UW-Madison's implementation of OneDrive for Business, you can simply copy and paste.
Your personal Microsoft or Outlook.com account comes with access to OneDrive for Business - this should be used to save documents, photos, and other files in the cloud, share them with friends, and even collaborate on content that is not related to university related services. You’re free to decide how you want to use it.
Your UW-Madison Office 365 account also comes with OneDrive for Business and is intended to be used for UW-Madison business related purposes.
Each user gets 1 TB (terabyte) of storage space in the cloud. However, users who want additional storage can request it as needed by contacting Microsoft Support.
All files that you store in OneDrive for Business are private unless you decide to share them.
You can share a file within anyone by providing direct access or via a specific url. Learn more.
