OneDrive used to be called Skydrive.
One Drive is a cloud storage area or a memory stick in the cloud where you can access your documents at any time, in any location, on any device, so long as you have an Internet connection.
OneDrive helps you to organise your files and pictures online. You can share documents with others and give them permissions to view only or edit your documents. So goodbye emailing attachments and not knowing which is the latest version!
In this session
