OneDrive system requirements

OneDrive requires an active Microsoft account, or a work or school account. For help with creating a Microsoft account or signing in, see: Microsoft account help

For the best experience on the OneDrive website, we recommend using the latest version of Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

OneDrive desktop app

The OneDrive desktop sync app (available on the download page of the OneDrive website) requires the following:

  • Operating system:

    • 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, or Windows 7.


      • The OneDrive sync app isn't supported on Windows XP or Linux.

      • OneDrive sync app functionality is built into Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 and supports connecting to OneDrive for Business to sync your work or school files. For more information, see Sync files with OneDrive in Windows.

      • To share files and folders from File Explorer, you must have Internet Explorer 11 or later.

    • Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 (including R2), or Windows Server 2008 R2.

    • Mac OS X 10.12 or later.

      Note: As of 1 February 2019, OneDrive only supports new installations on Mac OS 10.12 or newer. For more information, see OneDrive End Of Support Notice

OneDrive mobile app

The OneDrive mobile app requires one of the following:

  • A phone or tablet with Android 6.0 or later. Get the Android app.

    Note: The Google Play store and the OneDrive app for Android aren't available in China. Also, because is blocked in China by the government firewall, the OneDrive app won't work in China when you sign in with a Microsoft account.

  • An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 11.3 or later Get the iOS app.

  • A phone running Windows Phone 10 or later. Get the Windows 10 app

    Note: Learn more about the Windows 10 Mobile End of Support policy.

Beta or Preview releases

We love early adopters, but PC, Mac, and mobile OS beta releases aren't supported. You'll need to stick with production releases to continue to use OneDrive reliably. 

However, if you're keen to always have the latest and greatest, why don't you join the OneDrive Preview for Android or OneDrive Preview for iOS and get early access to new features in the OneDrive mobile app.
