Upload files and folders to OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business

Lesson 2/10

This lesson demonstrates how you can upload existing files and folders from your local machine or a shared network drive to your OneDrive for Business. Doing so puts your files in the cloud, giving you access to your files anywhere, anytime, on any device.


You can use the Upload button to upload one or many files, or a folder (or several) which will include any sub-folder structures and their files.

You can also drag-and-drop files from a local location (shared network drive, your desktop, etc.) via File Explorer into your browser with OneDrive open. This includes the ability to drag into a specific folder in OneDrive.
