If OneDrive is not already installed, it will need to be downloaded from: https://www.office.com/?auth=2&home=1.

Once downloaded and installed:

  • Click on the Cloud icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. This will show files and their status. 

  • Click on "More".

  • Click on "Settings".

  • This screen will pop up. Click on "Backup".

  • From here you can click on "Manage Backup" and choose what files you want to be backed up to your OneDrive.

  • Select which folders you want on your OneDrive.

  • You can view sync progress by clicking on the button.

  • This is how it will look on the screen. You can see the status of the files and if OneDrive is syncing anything or if it is up to date.

  • Your files will now be backed up to the OneDrive server, and you can access them from any computer by going to clicking on the Cloud and "View Online".
