Sharing files with others

After you sync your OneDrive for Business files with your computer, you can put away your browser and manage your files like other files on your computer. Need to add a file to OneDrive for Business? Just drag it to your OneDrive for Business folder. You move, rename, and delete your files the same way you're used to, with one important difference: the changes you make to OneDrive for Business files will sync to all your other devices. So if you delete a file here, it's deleted everywhere.

Copy or move files in OneDrive for Business

  1. In File Explorer, select the files you want to copy or move.

  2. Right-click the files and drag them to your OneDrive - YourCompanyName folder or to another location.
