Upgrade your OneDrive for Business sync client

Enjoy faster and more reliable syncing of your OneDrive for Business or SharePoint files with the new OneDrive sync client.

Getting started with the new sync client takes just two easy steps:

  1. If you're running Windows 10 or you know that you're running the OneDrive desktop app, you don't need to download anything. Just click here to add a work or school account.

    If you're running an earlier version of Windows, download and install the new OneDrive sync client. If you see the following error when you try to download and install the client, you already have the OneDrive desktop app:

    An error message that says you already have a newer version of OneDrive installed.

    When the installation finishes, you should see one of the following sign-in pages.

    Note: If you don’t see either of these pages, click here to add a work or school account. See also the detailed instructions to get started in Windows.

  2. Sign in with your work or school account and follow the wizard.

    When you see Your OneDrive is ready for you, that's it! Now, your OneDrive for Business files are syncing with the latest client. Enjoy!
