OneDrive - Sync Files and Folders

With OneDrive, you can sync files between your computer and the cloud, so you can get to them from anywhere.

Sync OneDrive to your computer

  1. Select Start, type OneDrive, and then select the OneDrive desktop app.

  2. Sign in to OneDrive with the account you want to sync and finish setting up.

    Your OneDrive files will start syncing to your computer.

Work with your files in your file system

Once you're synced, you’ll see your files in File Explorer. On a Mac, your files will appear under OneDrive in the Mac Finder.

If you use more than one account, your personal files appear under OneDrive – Personal and your work or school files appear under OneDrive - CompanyName.

You can copy or move files from your computer to OneDrive right from your file system.

You can also click the OneDrive cloud icon in the Windows notification area to check status on your files. Click the Settings gear to add an account, or manage other sync settings.
