OneDrive is Microsoft’s official service for cloud storage, recently released and now compatible with portable devices. Developed by the Redmond Company, this online software lets you save and download your documents, videos and images directly from any compatible device, such as smartphones, tablets or even Xbox consoles, just by signing up to your free account.
The application takes the former SkyDrive features and enhances its overall functionality apart from from the addition of more functions. Having installed the software on your device, you will be able to upload and download the archives of your folders, and those with content that you already have permission to overwrite. Having your own files online grants immediate access as long as you have an Internet connection.
OneDrive offers the possibility of modifying your documents online thanks to the online Office tools Microsoft offers. This way it enables real-time collaboration with your class partners or co-workers simply by establishing the necessary permissions on your folders to share. OneDrive synchronizes the modifications you make to your local documents if you have already uploaded the file to your account. This way you can work comfortably on your device without worrying about uploading updated versions of the same document.
