Upload, Sync, and Manage Files
OneDrive isn't just for storing documents. You can also upload other files, like photos, videos, music, and more. In total, OneDrive gives you 5GB of free space to store files of all types.
In this lesson, you will learn how to upload and sync files from your computer to OneDrive. You'll also learn how to move files from one folder to another. Finally, you'll learn about additional file options, including special options for managing photos.
The OneDrive desktop application makes it easy to upload and sync files across all of your devices—check out our lesson on Getting Started with OneDrive to learn how to install the app (if you haven't already). The OneDrive desktop application works like any other folder on your computer. Whenever you move a file to the OneDrive folder, that file is moved online to the cloud, allowing you to access the same version of that file from any computer connected to the Internet.
Uploading individual files can start to become very time consuming. Fortunately, you can also move entire folders to OneDrive. Whenever you upload a folder, the folder and every file stored within it will be uploaded to your OneDrive.
