Synchronization makes sure any changes to a file on the desktop or in OneDrive for Business are reconciled so that each copy of the file reflects the latest changes.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Sync your files

  2. At the top of any page in Office 365, select OneDrive. Or select Office 365 app launcher icon , and then select OneDrive.

    Note: The first time you click OneDrive, you will see some setup screens and instructions while your personal site is being set up. You may have to wait and then click OneDrive again before continuing to step 3.
