OneDrive for Business is a cloud storage service from Microsoft that is included within LSUE's Office 365 environment. It allows you to store all your important files securely in one place and then access them from basically anywhere. The service comes with 1TB of storage space.
OneDrive works just like a traditional computer hard drive, but stores data in the cloud. Thanks to its cross-platform design, users can create files on their computer and pick up where you left off from a different device such as your laptop, tablet, or phone without having to save a copy on a USB drive. OneDrive allows users to save private files, make files public, share files with contacts, and create files for use with many Microsoft products. LSUE's OneDrive environment is accessible through https://www.lsue.edu/office.
